1lbs. ground turkey

1 jar ragu spagetti sauce
11 oz reduced fat mozzeralla cheese (grated)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 egg
1 bunch green onions chopped

slice eggplant in circles before you start... place heavy pan or cuttingboard on sliced salted eggplant for 1 hour to drain out excessive water... brown ground turkey on medium heat. Add garlic, onion and bellpepper. cook till transparent. Add spagetti sauce and cook till heated through. Add spinach and cook till whilted. In separate dish mix ricota cheese with green onions and egg. heat slices of eggplant on skillet with pam spray for about 4 minutes on each side (i did this to make baking time shorter). spread meat and veggie sauce on bottom layer of cassarol dish, then layer with eggplant, ricotta mixture and sprinkle with mozzerella cheese, repeat layer and cover with foil. Bake at 375 degreese for 35 minutes. uncover for 5-10 minutes to brown top... let sit for 10 minutes and enjoy!
