    This is a GREAT dish -- amazingly easy to prepare. I usually make it on the weekend and double the recipe and put half in the refrigerator to bake later in the week. I substitute ground chicken breast for the turkey. Its baking in my oven right now! - 1/6/10

    I have made this several times (originally got from Clean Eating Magazine). It is delicious and my picky kids eat it up. However, make these schange and you will end up with a moist dish. 1) shred onion and carrot with cheese shredder. 2) saute these first, then add garlic & turkey, the rest. - 1/30/10

  • I included leftover veggies including green beans, mushrooms, ~1 cup kale. I used marinara instead of tomato paste and veggie broth in place of chicken broth bc I also had those already opened. Only used ~1T olive oil since I used a nonstick pan. Topped with chives and 1 cup shredded cheese. - 9/22/14

  • I skip the oil by sauteeing the veggies while browning the meat. Yum!!!! - 11/24/10

  • Delicious! I agree that is is a great comfort food but surprisingly healthy. Another commented that is enough for 3 adults. I definitely would not say it yields 6 servings as the recipe states, but I'd say it is enough for 4. Takes a little time to prepare but well worth it. - 7/29/10

  • This was really good. Next time I will mash the carrots bc my picky 5 year old wouldn't eat it. But my 10 year old and I thought it was great. I'd say it makes enough for 3 adults. - 3/5/10
