Use up those stray lasagna noodles in this speedy, family-friendly pasta dish.


  • 8 lasagna noodles, broken in half crossways*
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pound bulk Italian turkey sausage (or turkey sausage links, casings removed)
  • 1 14 1/2 - ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 8 - ounce can tomato sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (1 clove)
  • 1 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • Grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain and cool slightly; cut noodles in half lengthwise.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage; cook until sausage is firm, breaking up large pieces. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano, rosemary and garlic; cover and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in zucchini; cover and simmer 3 minutes more or just until tender. Stir in cooked noodles to coat with sauce; heat through. Add mozzarella chunks without stirring; remove from heat, cover and let stand 1 minute or until mozzarella starts to melt. Serve, passing Parmesan for topping.


  • *Noodle Substitutions No lasagna noodles? No worries. Just swap in 7 to 8 ounces of another pasta shape.


  • Pile on the Veggies Add any cooked vegetables--broccoli, carrots, peppers, green beans--to the sauce to enhance nutrient value, color and texture, and to make good use of leftovers.
