This is one of the family favorites, We make it with lean hamburger as well but it has more calories and fat. This is the low-fat, low-calorie version.

    This was really enjoyed by my family - especially my husband who has not come very willingly on this journey with me. I added about a cup and a half of left over black beans to the turkey mixture and topped the cheese with canned diced tomatoes before baking - no fresh in my fridge. Great! - 4/3/09

  • I subbed Boca veggie crumbles, added a can of spicy black beans drained and doubled the cheese. I calculated a serving at 285 cals. Vegetarian yumminess! - 1/18/16
