I've made it twice using ground turkey and Italian sausage in one and turkey sausages and ground beef in the other. The pasta definitely soaked up the spaghetti sauce, but I just added a can of tomato sauce to my leftovers. The second time I made it for friends and everyone enjoyed it immensely.
I used lean ground turkey and the recipe was good. However, the noodles absorbed most of the sauce so they were pretty soft. I cooked it on low heat in my slow cooker for about 6 hours. If someone has any ideas on how to bake it so the noodles don't over cook and absorb all the sauce, please let me know and I will definitely make this again. Also, I paired it with the cheesy Italian bread from this site and it was awesome
