Cook at 350' for 30 minutes. Top with mozzerella cheese. 8 servings.
I liked it, my husband liked it and my four toddlers liked it! I used green olives instead of black and used all turkey instead of 1/2 and 1/2 it was great! I also made extra and froze it - it freezes well.
Delicious! I used all turkey and added more mushrooms and onion. Not a fan of pepper so left that out. Also used homemade spaghetti sauce instead of store bought. I ended up baking it uncovered for 20 minutes and top was a bit crunchy- might end up baking it a little less next time or foil it up.
That was a awesome recipe, tried it a few days ago! I used whole wheat linguine noodles (its all I had at the time) and it still turned out pretty good! Hubby really enjoyed it, but my picky 4 year old wouldnt touch it lol! Kudos!!!
I used all turkey meat and my kids loved it and couldn't tell the difference. I made it for the freezer meal club I belong to and it was very easy to make several of them at once. I ended up making 10 of them so I could keep 2 and freeze.
Looks tasty, but nutritional info can't be right - there are way more carbs in pasta than 18g per serving.
Reply from CHALIGAL155(5/4/09) There are 8 serv~so you are getting 1oz pasta~100% whole wheat I may add~so unless the package is incorrect, (its not~ I checked) then Im sorry, but youre the one who must be wrong. Please do research before commenting negatively on a recipe~this causes confusion for others who may want to try it.
