Just a note to let everyone know after reading all the postings. Walmart sells 1lb rolls of italian seasoned ground turkey and also taco seasoned turkey that are really good and cheaper then the regular rolls of ground turkey. It alleviates having to put in some of the other seasonings
I added garlic and minced onion while browning the ground turkey, and basil and oregano once I added the crushed tomatoes. I'm thinking zucchini and mushrooms might be an alternative to cauliflower and broccoli that would meld better with the other flavors.
I made this tonight and it was very good. I added a few more Italian spices, used chicken broth and extra lean ground veal because that's' what I had on hand. The rest of the family liked it too. It was easy and tasty, I would make it again.
Yum! I used low-sodium chicken broth and low-sodium diced tomatoes, and added garlic, onions, basil, and zucchini to the recipe. I think as is it would be pretty bland, but it's a great starting point and super easy to jazz up!
I thought this was wonderful! It made so much more than I was expecting for some reason. I hope a cup was a serving. That's what I ate. There still was a ton left! I'd like to try it again with chicken and chicken broth. Bet it would be great that way too!
We liked this, but as others have commented, thought it needed garlic. It is a great one-dish meal and could easily be adapted to suit a family's tastes by using different vegetables and/or spices. We'll definitely make this again.
We made this replacing Firm Tofu for the ground turkey. After squeezing out the tofu with placed it in a pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil, the spices, 1/4 tsp oregeno, 1/4 basil and browned the tofu. It was the best. 1/2 Tsp salt because turkey has a salt content.
I added garlic to the ground turkey as it was browning. I didn't have crushed tomatoes. I added 1 can of diced tomatoes with juice along with 1 can of tomatoe soup. Also I didn't have vegetable broth so I used chicken stock. We sprinkled part skim mozzerella on top and it was a big hit!
just suggestions.If you don't like whole wheat pasta try whole grain.Add favorite herbs.Try smoked paprika.Chipolte powder adds a little smokey zing. Emeril's Turkey rub is a fine ground, blend of spices that I highly recomemd for all poultry dishes.what a nice find this product was....Chef Jim
We made this last night. We did the cauliflower and broccoli on the side, but added onion, garlic powder, more tomatoes,and some herbs. All liked it, my picky son ate 2 portions. Couldn't tell the pasta was whole wheat, it soaked up all the fluid!
I've made this reicpe before but I use Italian sausage instead of ground turket and I add zuchini rather than cauliflower. I know the sauage has more calories than the turkey, but with Italian seasonings, it's a really good dish!!
Dish was very tasty. It had a very light flavor, not too overpowering. My husband added a bit of parmasean. I didn't really dig on the cauliflower, but I think adding more broccoli could have helped. We cook "cooking light" recipes all the time and it was definitely in the same category.
Some of the previous reviews are really harsh! This is actually really good. I added garlic, mushrooms, and minced onions....and i also left out the bell pepper as I didn't have any...AND (yeah i know...) I used italian turkey sausage instead of just ground turkey... but all in all...it's hearty!
I'm not a fan of cauliflower, but I used it in this dish and I enjoyed it a lot. I added one minced clove of garlic and a tablespoon of fresh rosemary. I also used ground pork instead of poultry.
I made this dish last night for dinner, after reading the rating s and commet I did make a few changes, I used red peppers and added one onion and a clove of gralic, next time I think I will try half paprika and half chili powder. My husband enjoyed it as well
I didn't like this. I will definitely add garlic and onions if I make it again, and leave out the cauliflower. I had to put a lot of cheese on it to give it some flavor besides the bitterness of the green peppers (my husband likes them). I would definitely use red/yellow peppers instead next time
I love this recipe! Here are my taste tweaks: I added 2 packets of Sweet N Low. It doesn't make it sweet, it just cuts the acidity of the tomatoes. I also added chili powder and some salt. I microwaved a bag of mixed vegies and dumped them in near the end of cooking. So easy and Delish!
I made this--added onion, red bell pepper and left out the cauliflower. It was still kind of bland, and not my husband's favorite. I might make it again on a night when he wouldn't be home, though.
I thought it had a lot of flavor. I used green and red peppers. Due to circumstances though I didn't get to add the broccoli or cauliflower in time to steam. I put it on the side instead. Next time I'll try it the "right" way.
Very bland if made as it is. I left out the green peppers and added some basil. Should have added garlic too. And I used ground round instead of turkey. But it didn't help. It was ok, but no one went for seconds.
Loved the taste of this after adding a wider variety of italian-themed spices/herbs! Will try adding minced garlic and onions next time. Also, I reduced cooking time by 15 minutes and just added a small salad on the side.
This was pretty good. I normally don't like spicy anything, this was great. I didn't use cauliflower, I used broccoli and zucchini. The only change I would make is to add the peppers when I added the rest of the veggies.
I'm going to give this a try soon. I might take one persons suggestion, and use zucchini and mushrooms in place of the broccoli and cauliflower. I'll come back and post again after I've made this.
