  • 1 pound whole wheat penne pasta
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 2 26 ounce jars marinara sauce
  • 1 carrot chopped
  • 6 ounces provolone cheese sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced-fat or fat free sour cream
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese shredded

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and carrot until onion is translucent and carrot is crisp-tender. Add the pound of turkey. Cook until it is no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Add spaghetti sauce and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  • Layer ingredients into prepared baking dish as follows: half the cooked penne pasta, provolone cheese, sour cream, half the sauce mixture, remaining penne, mozzarella cheese, and remaining sauce mixture. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in preheated oven until cheeses are melted, about 30 minutes.
