RECIPE:

  • 2 packages Fiber Gourmet Pasta (to order: https://www.netrition.com/cgi/goto.cgi?aid=4549

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 pound 99% ground turkey

  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

  • 32 oz zero point marinara

  • 15 oz low-fat ricotta cheese

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided

  • 3/4 cups shredded Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • Dash of crushed red pepper flakes, optional

  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste

  • For garnish: chopped basil, if desired


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9×13-baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta until al dente. Use a colander to drain well. Pour the pasta into a large bowl and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the ground turkey and poultry seasoning and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until it is no longer pink, about 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ricotta, egg, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, ½ cup Parmesan cheese, basil, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper flakes, if using. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Add the ricotta mixture to the pasta. Add the marinara sauce, cooked sausage, and stir until combined, stirring gently to not break up the pasta noodles.

  • Pour the pasta into the prepared pan and top with the remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and the pasta is bubbly. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired, and serve warm.
