Or is there such a thing? I mean the only healthy way I can think of making it would be to use WW Lasagna sheets & turkey for the meat.

I don't see a way around the Ricotta cheese if I were to use it or any good cheese for that matter.

Well I mean something that's following around the typical guidelines of being made with foods that give you a good balance of healthy carbs / proteins & fats. Say, a lasagna that portions out to roughly 400-500 calories per serving while meeting the above requirements.

Fat free or lowfat ricotta. Or even cottage cheese mixed with some italian herbs and garlic works well for the cheese. Lean ground beef, turkey, or chicken. Whole wheat noodles, canned tomatoes... really pretty damn healthy.
