    I made this on Sunday and it was a little dry. Next time I will use fresh spinach cooked with garlic and mushrooms rather than frozen. Ground turkey can be rather bland so it definitely needs alot of flavor added to it. I added a whole onion and garlic in the food processor and an entire envelope of onion soup mix to the turkey. Maybe a little sauce on top next time? I will make again though.

    This was terrific!.  I don't like mushrooms so I left those out but added a clove of garlic to the spinach mixture and a layer of Feta cheese on top of the spinach layer-about half a cup. My husband loved it.  Will definitely make this again.
