    Okay, I'm changing the name of this meal to 'Magic Manicotti'. I've been eating it for lunch and sometimes dinner all week and I've lost 4 pounds. It is so easy to make and tastes delicious. I added about a 1/2 cup of the cheese to the turkey after I cooked it, to aid in stuffing the shells. YUM! - 3/5/09

    I had to read the recipe a couple of times to understand it. The number of manicotti should be in the ingredients. It was very tasty though. I had to reduce it for 2 people though. I make it for 2 days. - 7/30/08

    Excellent! I browned the ground turkey, then stirred some sauce into it along with the spices and a little bit of cheese. I filled the dry manicotti and had meat leftover so I just dropped it into the casserole dish. I didn't use anywhere near a pound of cheese. - 1/1/12

    Did not care for the fat free cheese, will use low fat next time. Also, do not think the manicotti noodle nutrition was included in the serving calculations.Will try again with a little 'tweaking'. - 3/31/09

    I made this 2x already and we loved it! Its very tasty. I'd recommend maybe less cheese, but other than that, its super easy to make & delicious. - 1/24/09
