“I add about 1 teaspoon of fennel seed to 1 pound of ground turkey as I brown it,” reveals Carolyn A. of Golden Valley, Minnesota. “It makes the turkey taste like sausage, which is great in lasagna and spaghetti.”
I revamped our favorite sloppy joe recipe into this thick spaghetti sauce that simmers in the slow cooker. The flavor is jazzy enough to be interesting to adults, yet mild enough to be enjoyed by children.

"When making traditional lasagna, my mother would always have leftover noodles, so she experimented and came up with this tasty way to use them up," writes Renee Buck from Greenville, South Carolina. "You can substitute chicken for the ground turkey and use spinach instead of broccoli in the filling for these roll-ups," she suggests.
