MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2014

I used chicken cuz it was cheaper than turkey. I had to double the seasonings listed and just kept adding seasonings till it tasted good to me. I know I added some poultry seasoning as suggested by another reviewer as well as oregano, Italian seasoning, and seasoned salt. I definitely added the Parmesan cheese and some hot sauce to my serving. By then, it was quite tasty!

I used ground turkey, substituted a yellow bell pepper for the celery and added a half bag of fresh spinach. De-lish. Tasted like it took hours.
