Cheesy Turkeyburger Casserole

Submitted by: JC1204

Introduction

Ground turkey and pasta and cheese... So good it feels like cheating!

I make this for my husband and me--but I'm sure to put the other 4 servings into 1 serving sized Tupperware containers first (perfect for lunch the next day!).

  • Easy to make and was very good. Just needed a bit more sauce - it came out a bit dry. I added some spinach, which was a nice addition. - 2/25/11

  • Easy to make! Very good! I may add a tad more sauce because it came out a bit dry. I also used fresh tomatoes instead of the canned which tastes great! I love it! - 2/7/11
