1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 jar (27 1/2 ounces) pasta sauce
1 can (8 ounces) stewed tomatoes, undrained
vegetable oil cooking spray
1 package (8 ounces) no yolk noodles, uncooked
1 1/2 pounds zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices
salt and pepper, to taste
1 package (15 ounces) nonfat ricotta cheese
2 cups low fat mozzarella cheese

In large non-stick skillet, over medium-high heat, saute turkey, onion and garlic 5 to 6 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink; remove from heat. Stir in pasta sauce and stewed tomatoes.

In (9 x 13 x 2-inch) casserole, sprayed with vegetable oil, layer 1/3 of sauce, 1/2 of noodles and 1/2 of zucchini, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, and top with 1/2 of Ricotta cheese and 1/2 of Mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers and top with remaining sauce. Cover casserole with foil, sprayed with vegetable oil, sprayed side down. Place casserole on a cookie sheet.
