And just when you thought you’d seen just about every use for the one and only Greek yogurt of choice

In walks this lil’ dish. A noodle-free lasagna of sorts all “beefed” up with healthy veggies and a tangy Italian tomato base.

Greek yogurt replaces a more traditional ricotta and when combined with shredded cheese & broccoli, an inventive layer for this “lasagna” is formed.

Pinterest is such a wonderful thing now isn’t it?!?!  (Source of pinspiration)

My take on this Pinspired dish included frozen chopped broccoli instead of fresh, a blend of my own spices in lieu of “Italian seasoning” and a local ground turkey which included some dark meat as well, really giving it some deep flavor.

Oh  yea, and a swap of the goat cheese for shredded monterey jack, because here’s the honest truth —> I loathe goat cheese. There, I said it.

As in hate it. As in can’t even swallow it. And believe me, I’ve tried to like it. I’ve triiiiieeeeeddddd!!! Like 36 times probably. Including the time it was offered to me by the owners of this lovely winery & I started literally sweating at the thought of (1) having to eat it and (2) having to pretend to enjoy it (this is my life people). Everyone always looks so happy eating it, why can’t I?!  

You know I shun no foods, I ate sweetbreads & tripe on my birthday for goodness sake!! *sigh* but I digress…

If goat cheese is your thang then go for it… and send me some of your taste buds while you’re at it, clearly mine are confused?! 😉

A lil’ layering…

And there you have it! A noodle-free, guit-free way to enjoy one of your favorite comfort foods with lots of veggie power 🙂

The flavor on the turkey mixture in this dish was fantastic. And I really enjoyed the way the yogurt mixture melted and played into that as well.

My only notes on this would be that there was a bit of excess liquid due to the frozen broccoli I believe, however a quick few spoonfuls to remove that before serving and that was all but ancient history.

Overall I’d definitely make this again. Fairly easy, super healthy and tasted delicious. Sold! 😛

Do share, do you like goat cheese??? Or am I the only weirdo out here… (wait, maybe don’t answer that 😉 )

  1. My husband doesn’t like goat cheese either! I think its either a love it or hate it flavor. This looks so good! I made something similar a while back (except I didn’t use Chobani- brilliant!). So delish

  2. I love goat cheese, but don’t like blue cheese or brie. To each their own 🙂
    This lasagna looks amazing!

  3. Um, yum! I would definitely love to try making a vegetarian version of this :).

  4. Lasgana made with chobani?!?!? I could totally swap in some soy crumbles and make this!!! YUM!

  5. Um… how was I not following you on Pinterest already?! That has now been corrected! Also, this looks great! I have a similar recipe that I’ve been wanting to try out! 🙂

  6. I loveee goat cheese, especially when paired with some sweet jelly – like on top of an english muffin! Buttt I also like jack cheese and lasagna so this alternative sounds tasty too 😛
