We make this a lot. Although a healthier version than ground beef, it can be a little "dry" which drives us nuts. But, the taste is good (I add extra garlic & parmesean with rosemary, sage and oregano) I also add a bunch load of mezzerlla on top for added moisture and gooeyness. Count in tracker! - 1/14/11

If it's really too dry for your preference you might try adding a little bit of nearly fat-free chicken broth :)
WOw... this was amazing! I used the Italian Ground Turkey and a little extra garlic - but this was a huge success - our only complaint with our family of three is there are not enough left overs to go around! I love how elegant it looks too - a great meal for company! YUM!!! - 4/27/09
