Turkey Tortilla Lasagna

final lasagna

Back to school means back to early morning alarm clocks, full schedules, homework arguments, and later nights.  For us, dinner is the only time we can sit down as a family and catch each other up on the events of our respective day.

But, I have to admit,  getting into the routine of cooking every night has also been a challenge.  Monday through Friday  I’m all about hassle-free meals in under 30 minute meals.

According to my kids, last night’s dinner is now the new #1 meal.  I can’t take credit, my sister put the idea in my head when she told me that she makes  a Turkey Tortilla Lasagna that her kids always adore.

Lucky for me, as my sister was talking I realized that I had all the ingredients at home.  So, I decided to make my own version of my sister’s celcbrated dish.

I used Honey Wheat Flatbread instead of tortillas.

For the meat, I used ground turkey sautéed with tomato sauce, onions and brown sugar instead of Spanish paprika and spices.


I added in some fresh spinach so I wouldn’t have to cook a veggie side.

I used a mixture of shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses and baked the lasagna in a small square Pyrex dish.


The dish was beyond delicious. My 8-year old ate three huge pieces.  The best part is the left overs waiting for us in the fridge.

This is a must try!!
