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