Terrrrific! Easy to make, tastes great. Took the advice of previous reviewers by adding onion and garlic. I substituted with low fat cheese and sour cream and our favorite spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce. To avoid the dryness others mentioned, I tripled the amount of sauce to 24 oz and mixed the noodles with the meat/sauce before layering. Will make this again! Read More

very very dry even w/ the addition of 1/2 a can chopped tomatoes w/ juice - but this recipe does have potential w/ modifications. I would TRIPLE the tomatoe sauce if I made this again. I also would definitely recommend adding spices to the meat as it's cooking and some oregano when the sauce is added or this dish would be pretty bland even w/ the sour cream and cream cheese. I used lowfat sour cream and nuefchatel (lowfat) cream cheese which seemed to work fine for that layer but DON'T use lowfat or fat free cheese on top it just doesn't have the melting power and richness needed for a recipe like this (learned the hard way).

Good basic recipe but does need tweeking, with a few adjustments my husband loves it. Double the tomato sauce, add some salt and lots of pepper, saute some onion, peppers, and garlic with the ground turkey - so much better. I usually make it low fat by using low fat cream cheese, fat free sour cream, and fat free or low fat cheese, also ground turkey breast instead of regular ground turkey. Still delicious low fat ... really! Read More

This dish is DE-LISH!!! My 8-year olds are very picky eaters but they asked for seconds! (Now that's a first). I did take the reccommendations of other reviewers and mixed the noodles with the meat and used seasoned chopped tomatos instead of plain tomato sauce. I also seasoned the meat by adding pepper, garlic salt, oregano, cilantro, onions, and garlic. I also added frozen peas to add veggies to this quick, one-dish meal. My husband thought it was lasagna. I EVEN GOT A THUMBS UP FROM MY MOTHER-IN-LAW!!! I will definitely make this dish again. I can see this dish becoming a family favorite in my household. Read More

Use a jar of salsa instead of tomato sauce & mexican cheese instead of cheddar & you will be making this once a week! You do not need the entire 12oz bag of egg noodles I use about 8 oz. Hubby & toddler LOVED this. Couldn't ask for a quicker delicous meal. MMM MMM MMM...THANK YOU!!! Read More

I used "lite" ingredients. Still tasted good. Rich and filling. Will make again but I will add more sauce or maybe a can of tomatoes. I thought it was a little dry. Read More

I found this recipe to be very bland. Pehaps some onions or garlic might spice it up a bit or even spiced tomato sauce. Read More

The recipe was VERY good. My husband loved it. I did add a can of stewed tomatoes and chopped onions to the turkey after it browned. I wouldn't change anything else. This is a must for a pot luck or company. Read More

Out Blinkin Standing...with a few of my infamous modifications. Use your imagination. I added milk instead of water fat free sour cream a little curry and red pepper flakes for those that suggested it was a bit bland. I used a bunch of onion and garlic in the stir fry with the 1 pound of lean ground turkey. Also added some 2% sharp cheddar and some Trader Joes New Zeeland goat fed sharp cheddar and a coup of microwaved frozen green peas. My POC (pasta of choice) was whole wheat rotini...about 16 oz's. Hamburger helper would be lucky to associate itself with this. Don't forget the diced Shitake mushrooms I added to the stir fry. See my other reviews to get an idea how to alter recipes to fit your tastes...flexibility to fit what you have in stock is the key to many as suggested by other reviewers. Many of my versions involve lower fat editions...with lean grd Turkey...not much else to do with this one. Eat up dudes and dudettes. Read More
