Turkey Lasagna

1 pound lean ground turkey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 pound thick sliced ham
2 cups mozzerella cheese, divided
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 package whole wheat lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
1 jar pasta sauce

Preheat the oven to 400*.   Over medium heat, brown the turkey in the olive oil.  Add in the garlic towards the middle to end of the cooking process to avoid burning.  Once the turkey is thoroughly cooked, remove from pan and drain on paper towels.

Mix turkey, ham, 1 1/2 cups of the mozzerella cheese, and the parmesan cheese together in a separate bowl. In a 13×9 baking dish that has been greased, begin assembling the lasagna.  Put down a little sauce to prevent sticking and then lay down the lasagna noodles in a single layer.  Next add a layer of sauce, then a layer of your meat mixture, then a layer of noodles.  Repeat.  On top of the last layer of noodles, add a little more sauce and top with the remaining mozzerella cheese.  Bake for 45 minutes or until cheese is melted and lasagna is completely warmed through.
