    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!  -  30 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!  -  10 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  07 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
