Harvest Meal - Turkey, Turmeric, Zucchini Lasagne

This one, believe it or not, does not have an actual recipe!! Which is totally out of my comfort zone!! So fair warning all information is a guesstimate. I've cooked this so many times I personally just 'know' what's up...

 

I originally had this in Edmonton at my Sister-In-Laws house one night. She is now pretty much vegan and zero sugar, but at the time didn't eat Red Meat and... maybe a couple of other things, but I don't know 100%... She also was combing a couple of different recipes as she was making it as well, so it's kind of a mix N' Match. But being lasagne it's pretty basic.

Like I said! This recipe has no recipe, so play around and add whatever you'd like. I'm sure it could add more spices, but we like it just the way it is!

Enjoy!
