Pre-heat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Lightly oil a 13" x 9" baking dish.
In a large pan, heat oil on medium. Add onions and brown sugar and saute for 15 minutes or until onions are soft and starting to caramelize. Set aside.
In the baking dish, spread 2 Tbsp (30 mL) pesto on the bottom. Place a single layer of noodles (2) to cover the entire bottom of the dish. Spread the noodles with 3/4 cup pesto evenly. Layer 2 cups of cooked turkey on top of the pesto, and then half of the caramelized onions.
Place another layer of noodles on top of the onions, pressing lightly. Spread 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) of ricotta cheese evenly over the noodles. Cover cheese with a single layer of tomato.
Place another noodle layer and repeat turkey/onion layer. Cover once more with noodles and repeat ricotta/tomato layer. Finish with another layer of noodles and then spread top with remaining 2 Tbsp (30 mL) of pesto. Sprinkle mozzarella and parmesan cheese evenly over the top.
Cover dish with lightly greased foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and baked 5 to 10 minutes more or until cheese is melted and starting to turn golden. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
