Number of Servings: 12


    1 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey, browned and drained
    1 large sweet yellow onion, chopped
    28 ounces prepared pizza sauce
    1 lb part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
    3 oz pepperoni, sliced
    8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced


Place ingredients in slow cooker in following order: turkey, onions, pizza sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms.

Cook on low for 5 hours.

The original recipe calls for cooked rigatoni pasta to go in with the other ingredients. I cooked the pasta (I had wide egg noodles on hand) separately about 15 min before the slow cooker was done. Served the dish to my hubby over the pasta... had mine without pasta. Yum! PASTA IS NOT COUNTED IN THE NUTRITIONAL STATS.

Makes 6 hungry man servings or 12 ladylike 1/2 servings.

  • I made this with hormel TURKEY pepperoni last night. It was tasty. I actually whipped up some eggs with italian spices and poured it over the meat before layering to give it a little more of a "crust" feel. It was really good! Thanks - 9/13/08

  • Bet you could add thin-sliced zucchini to take the place of the pasta (use a veggie peeler to make long strips). Sounds super. I think I'll try it! In fact, it's going on my grocery list! - 9/12/08

    If you want to get in more veggies, that's a great idea. Insofar as pasta substitution, I was quite happy without it. :) I was thinking there might be some leaner alternative to the pepperoni tho. Is there such a thing as turkey pepperoni, or did I dream this?
