Reviews for Turkey Spaghetti Pie
"Quick, easy, and makes great leftovers. Next time, I'll add a tad of Italian seasoning."
"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."
"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."
"This is wonderful weeknight meal! It is on the table in 1 hour and everyone loves it. It presents well enough even for company!"
