Easy Lasagna for 2

1 tablespoon of safflower oil 
1 lb white ground turkey 
1 small onion, chopped 
2 whole garlic cloves 
1/2 teaspoon of salt 
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
2 jars marinara sauce 
1 small ricotta cheese 
2 eggs 
1 cup of parmesan cheese 
1 cup of mozzarella cheese 
1 teaspoon of parsley 
6 lasagna noodles 

Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat with the oil.
Cook turkey, garlic, onion, salt, pepper until onion is translucent and turkey is cooked through. 

Cook your noodles by box directions and set aside. 
Empty sauce into a large deep set pan and mix turkey in. Simmer on low for 2-3 hours. The longer it sits the more the flavor soaks into the turkey. 
Once the sauce is done, preheat the oven to 350. 
In a large bowl, mix ricotta cheese and whisk in eggs one at a time. 
Assemble your dish by placing 3 noodles in the bottom of a baking dish. 
Layer with sauce to cover then top with half of the ricotta and half of the parmesan cheese. 
Add remaining 3 noodles and repeat layer ending with the full cup of mozzarella cheese. 
Sprinkle parsley and bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is lightly browning on top. 
Once out of the oven let cool 10-15 minutes so that the layers sit together before serving. 
Carefully serve and enjoy! 

This recipe is made to serve 2 people with just enough left overs for the following day!
