Hey, my name is Jared Abbott, and right now you can call me Chef J. I'm gonna sow you how to make turkey lasagna with goat cheese and basil. Now it's kind of healthy because it's got that ground turkey meat nice and lean, the tomato sauce which is healthy and the basil. A little bit naughty with the mozzarella, goat and Parmesan cheese. A couple tablespoons of olive oil in my pan. Let that heat up. We add in two chopped garlic cloves, half of a white onion, and a full green pepper all finely diced. Gonna let that soften up and simmer for a couple of minutes before adding in the ground turkey meat, which is very healthy and fresh. We'll then let that cook for about five or six minutes before I throw in this jar of marinara sauce, and trust me, it's got all healthy ingredients. Then start building my lasagna with a strip of olive oil down the middle. Take one of my pasta noodles that I've pre-boiled, they're nice and soft but not over-cooked, get that oil around. And lasagna's all about layering, so I'm gonna put a row of pasta noodles down, and then the sauce. Now the key here is my sauce is pretty thick, so it's not gonna be too watery. I kind of lay that out into the pan. Gonna add in my graded mozzarella cheese right on top of the sauce. Then we'll put some Parmesan, a couple sprinkles. And a little pinch of fresh chopped basil in there. Then it's time for another layer of the noodles. Lay them on top. Then we'll just repeat what we did before, sauce, cheese, basil, noodles. Alright, I've just laid down some basil. I'm gonna finish it with a little bit of red chili flake for some spice and a little extra Parmesan cheese, why not? And some aluminum foil over the top right before it goes into the oven. Alright, my lasagna's going into the oven for about 25 to 30 minutes at 375, it's time to check the lasagna, and pull this rack out, give it a quick turn, oh, the cheese is all melty and delicious. Here's where the goat cheese comes in. I'm gonna throw it on top, just kind of crumble it up. I'm actually gonna put this up top under the broiler for about two minutes. Just kind of let that goat cheese melt all over the place. Throw that right up top. So I pulled my lasagna out of the oven. I put a little extra basil and cheese right on top to finish it off. It's a healthy, tasty, kind of decadent treat. It's a fun little tip at the end, to try and put it under the broiler, it gets it nice and crispy on top. Try it out.
