Reviews for Turkey Spiral Skillet
"This was awesome, great flavor. My husband and 7 yr old loved it. When I made it the first time, I used whole wheat penne because the store was out of rotini. Still tasted great. When I made it the second time I saut?ed the veggies first in butter to get them softer before I cooked them with the meat. I omitted mushrooms and olives because I don't like them and used an extra pepper."
"Really enjoyed this dish! Nice flavor."
"Quick and easy! The whole family loved this one. I will be keeping this one!"
"Very tasty, my family didn't guess it was turkey. I would use a little less pasta the next time i make it"
