Champion Performance Recipe of the Week - "Not" Lasagna

With food sensitivity limitations, I've been eating a lot of turkey. Recently, my family enjoyed a lovely lasagna for dinner, while I suffered, drawing in the glorious scents of it... I thought, huh... wonder if... and voila! Yummy "Not" Lasagna ready in a jiff! Packed full of amazing, creamy and cheesy texture, spicy tomato sauce, downright "comfort" style, this recipe is a new favorite (and figure competition prep friendly!).

Here you go... this recipe is fabulous! Lots of flavor, decadent textures, and Clean Eating to boot! No one will ever know! It's as lovely on the plate as it is on the palate! Plus, it whips up FAST!!

"Not" Lasagna 
Chelle Stafford
makes 1 serving


  • 6 oz cooked Turkey Breast, diced into cubes (I roast a couple turkey breasts in my one-day food prep to have on hand throughout the week)

  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup diced onion (I like red)
  • 1/4 tsp Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb or Italian Blend

  • 1/4 cup Daiya Mozzarella shreds

DIRECTIONS (see step by step photos below)
  • Wash and chop mushrooms and onion. 
  • Heat non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with olive oil cooking spray.

  • Add spinach and cooked turkey breast, spray with oil again if needed.
  • Stir, cooking until spinach is wilted and turkey is warmed. 
  • Remove from heat.
  • Immediately add marinara and "cheese", stirring to combine. 
  • Allow to rest 1 minute for "cheese" to melt.
  • Serve.

TIPS... this recipe is gluten free, dairy free, corn free, and chicken free.
You may replace the turkey with cooked chicken breast.
If you can tolerate dairy, replace the Daiya cheese with mozzarella, but be aware the nutritional information will change.

I encourage you to try this recipe as it is written. It's super creamy, melty-cheesy, and full of "lasagna" flavor! My husband had no idea there was no "real" cheese in it! He loved it! ;-)
