Celery, water chestnuts and mushrooms add texture and crunch to this hearty casserole that is full of ground turkey. "I'll fix two and serve one with a salad to make a complete meal," writes Georgia Hennings of Alliance, Nebraska. "I keep the second one in the freezer to bake when company's coming."

"This casserole was fantastic. I left out a few veggies my family would not eat and added some Tomato/Basil/Garlic seasoning. It was fabulous! It was a crowd and a kid pleaser."
