"My family never tires of this versatile entree. We can have it once a week, and it’s different each time! I sometimes omit the turkey for a meatless meal, change up the veggies or use my own tomato sauce.” Mary Lou Moeller - Wooster, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 11, 2012

Pretty quick and easy. I substituted Ragu for the tomato sauce which helped with the liquids and the flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 6, 2012

My family was very disappointed in this - sounded like a tasty quick supper but we found it to be pretty bland and way too starchy tasting. Not awful but not good enough to make again.

Very quick meal but needs more spices.

I left off the peppers and mushrooms because I don't like them AT ALL. I love spaghetti sauce made with ground turkey.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 26, 2012

The base of the recipe is fine, just needs spices. Oregano, marjoram, thyme, bay leaf, onions and, of course, garlic. Try using some Hot Italian Turkey sausage to 'spice it up'.
