This recipe uses:


  • 2 cups Bison Cottage Cheese
  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 14 oz breakfast turkey sausage links, casings removed, crumbled
  • 3 cans (8 oz each) no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 9 whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 15 oz reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 slices provolone cheese


  • Step 1

    In large skillet, cook ground beef and turkey sausage over medium heat until browned, drain after cooking.

  • Step 2

    Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, garlic, sugar, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. During this time, cook lasagna noodles.

  • Step 3

    Make cheese mixture by combining eggs, Bison Cottage Cheese, ricotta cheese, Parmesan, and parsley in a small bowl.

  • Step 4

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 5

    Spread 1 cup meat sauce into a 13x9 baking dish coated with cooking spray or olive oil.

  • Step 6

    Layer 3 lasagna noodles, half of cheese mixture, 1-1/3 cups meat sauce and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers and top with remaining noodles and meat sauce.

  • Step 7

    Cover and bake lasagna for 55-60 minutes, until bubbly, and top with provolone and remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake uncovered 15-20 minutes longer, until cheese is melted.

  • Step 8

    Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting. Sprinkle with additional parsley, serve, and enjoy!
