    I used ground turkey & I substituted the bread crumbs with chopped mushrooms to make a carb free dish. It was great and very moist! Thanks! - 4/28/11

    This was great!!! I used ground turkey instead and added a half cup low fat ricotta cheese and only used a cup of the ww reduced fat mozarella cheese. If using the turkey i recommend shortening the cook time to make sure it doesnt dry out.... EXCELLENT! WILL MAKE AGAIN! - 3/20/08

    I used Shady Brooks Italian Seasoned Lean Ground Turkey and made my own bread crumbs from a recipe from Martha Stewart. I left out the spaghetti sauce. The changes I made cut over 100 calories off of this recipe and removed onions due to allergies. This went over really well with my whole family. - 10/1/13

    This was excellent!!! Added some fresh sliced mushrooms and onion with the spinach when I was sauting it and added a little more spices, oregano and basil and more garlic. I will definitely make this again! - 7/12/10

    This is a lot like I make, and it looks like in the pic their are carrot strips in it, but it isn't a listed ingredient. ? I add them, fresh garlic and onions too. Would of gave 5 stars but I changed it a lot. - 3/14/13
