Reviews for Bulgur Turkey Manicotti
"Made this last night and my husband absolutely loved it! I will be making this on a regular basis."
"Love this recipe. I use a plastic freezer bag , spoon in the filling, snip a corner of the bag the size of the noodle opening and it makes quick work of the filling job! I also add a thawed & drained 10oz. pkg. of spinach to the cheese mixture to provide more nutrition and texture."
"Have enjoyed this recipe for quite a while now as it was in one of the earlier editions. It is a healthy comfort food."
