Faux-sagna. Seriously. {gluten, dairy, and soy free}

I love lasagna.
Sometimes, however, I do not love to MAKE lasagna.
I'm not always prepared that far in advance, and I don't want to fiddle with the layering, but I want the taste.

Enter faux-sagna.

It tastes like lasagna, but it takes far less time to put together, and doesn't require use of the oven.

2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 lb. Ground Turkey {or beef}
1 Onion, diced
Mushrooms, finely chopped {optional}
2 Cloves Garlic {crushed}
Italian Seasoning {to taste}
Salt & Pepper {to taste}
1 {large, 24 oz.} can Tomato Sauce
8-10 Lasagna Noodles {Tinkyada brand are great}, broken into pieces and boiled until slightly undercooked, then rinsed
Daiya Mozzarella-style Shreds

Heat the olive oil in a large pot {again, my enameled dutch oven comes into play!}, and cook the turkey and onion until done.
Add the garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Season the meat to taste using the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
Reduce the heat to simmer, and add the tomato sauce. Allow the mixture to cook for several minutes, then taste again. You may wish to add a bit more seasoning at this point.
Turn off the heat.
Add the broken lasagna noodles, stir to combine, top with Daiya shreds, and cover the pot, allowing it to sit for at least ten minutes.
Lift the lid, admire your handy-work, and serve!
