Turkey Spaghetti Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
This turkey-based entree is a tasty change from traditional spaghetti. Its saucy goodness really comes through when it's reheated on nights my husband and two active schoolboys need to eat in shifts. —Anita Cunningham of Blaine, Washington

MY REVIEW

"I've made this recipe quite a few times...every time I make it I forget and end up using a pound of turkey...I've made it for guests and everyone I've made it for (including myself) think it's very tasty, and a nice little twist...and it is relatively easy to put together."

"This was very good. I didn't tell my picky husband it was a light recipe and he still doesn't know! I will definitely make it again."

"I have been making spaghetti pie ever since a friend's mother gave me a recipe for it back in the '70s!!! I've been trying to cut back on fat/calories and looking for "makeover" recipes for some of my favorites. This is an excellent reduced fat/calorie of one of my all time favorites. A must have for any cooks collection."

MY REVIEW

"I didn't want to make a special trip to the store, so I used what I had on hand. I used whole wheat speghetti, 2 eggs instead of the eggs substitute, and chopped up half a zucchini instead of the green pepper. We liked it alot and I will probably make it again. I don't consider it 6 servings, not if you are feeding a hungry 6'3" man. We did have about one serving of leftovers from the two of us. A nice change from everyday spaghetti."
