Host a pasta party 35 minutes from now with this remarkably easy (and easy to tidy-up after) ground turkey skillet lasagna. A generous cup of summer squash and three types of cheeses mean that each scoop offers the perfect balance of nutrition and satisfaction.

8 -ounces lean ground turkey
1/2 - cup chopped onion
2 - cups pasta sauce with mushrooms
1 - cup water
2 - cups dried wide egg noodles
1 - cup coarsely chopped yellow summer squash
2 - cups chopped fresh spinach leaves
1/2 - cup fat-free ricotta cheese
1 - 2 - tablespoons grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1/4 - 1/2 - teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 - cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (2 oz.)

In a large skillet cook ground turkey and onion over medium heat until turkey is browned. Drain off any fat. Stir in pasta sauce and the water. Bring to boiling. Stir in noodles and squash. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in spinach.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and crushed red pepper.
Drop ricotta mixture into four mounds on top of turkey mixture. Sprinkle mounds with mozzarella cheese. Cook, covered, over low heat 4 to 5 minutes or until mounds are heated through. Let stand, uncovered, 10 minutes before serving.

If desired, stir in 2 Tbsp. snipped fresh basil with the pasta sauce and sprinkle with additional fresh basil before serving.
