I got creative while we were housebound during a snowstorm one winter...and used ingredients I had on hand to come up with this hearty casserole. Later, I modified it so it has less fat and fewer calories -Judy Munger of Warren, Minnesota

MY REVIEW

Very good! I used tomato basil pasta and my 4 yr old even ate it - and he is very picky! It's a keeper!

MY REVIEW

Made this tonight, it is a keeper of a recipe. Received a thumbs up from all who ate it.. It was enough for 3 adults and 2 kids. I would double it for more people.

I used one bag of noodles and it was fine.

I made as directed, only, I put each of the final toppings in separate bowls on the table, so each person could add the items they liked. (Some like ripe olives, tomatoes or sour cream and others don't)

It was like a taco salad without the taco.

I goofed and bought hot taco sauce, so only a couple put the hot sauce on it. I wil make this again...And double for company.

I think I used too many noodles...dish was a bit dry, but still delicious. I scribbled this recipe down so quickly that I never noted when to add the taco sauce...so I ended up throwing it into the meat mixture! It actually tasted quite good, lol. Overall, this is a filling and delicious...the toppings at the end make it fabulous. Next time I will MEASURE the noodles instead of eyeballing them. Thanks for this great recipe!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 2, 2010

My husband raved about how good this dish was. The next day after we had it, he told me to feel free to make it again...soon!

I only used one pound of ground turkey; it seemed like that was plenty (even with the two cups of noodles).
