1 (16 ounce) container
low-fat ricotta cheese
1 (8 ounce) package
shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
garlic, minced, or more to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (1 pound) package
whole-wheat penne pasta
1 (13.5 ounce) jar
Very good quick dish, but I did make a lot of changes. I added alot more garlic and next time will throw the garlic in the beef at the end of the saute time to cook it a little. I also added a bit of crushed red pepper flake to the cheese mixture and meat. After the meat was cooked I sauted some veggies too and threw those is. I used onion, red and yellow pepper and zuchini. I also used a little more sauce and added some basil and oregano. Very tasty and we will have leftovers for a week! Which I love.
This was pretty bland. I think I would add more sauce if I made it again. It did make alot which is nice if you enjoy leftovers.
Yum, yum, yummy. My family loved it. All three kids had second helpings, which is highly rare. I made a small change because I hate when people completely change a recipie and then rate it. I added some italian herb season to the turkey as I cooked it. Only becuase I'm not a fan of plain ground turkey. Everything else the same and it was so good. The only problem I had is that it did not heat through enough. Next time I will crank the heat up to 350 and cook for 35-40 minutes. Also, definitely cover with foil. Ours was a little dry on top.
it was made for kids who loved it
Very good! I added some more flavor by adding garlic, crushed red pepper, oregano, basil, and rosemary to the turkey while cooking, and I used an entire jar of sauce even though I halved the recipe. (What can I say? I LOVE tomato sauce!). I didn't have ricotta so I just left it out, and I added broccoli to the cheese mixture to up the veggie count. Turned out excellent. Very nice, very flavorful. Turkey doesn't always have much of a flavor so I'm always spicing it up. I made this up and refrigerated the night before, so instead of the oven on 300 for 30 minutes I upped the temp to 350 and the time to 50 minutes so it would heat through and melt the cheese. I don't think this would have been necessary if I'd made the entire thing the same day. Thanks for the recipe!
really good, easy, fast. I used low-fat cottage cheese and low moisture mozz, added some orregano. The fresh garlic is a must for flavor. makes a lot! I was going to put frozen spinach in the dish, but I forgot. I think it would make it to watery-would have to really squeeze it dry first.
I have made this several times and have added thawed frozen spinach; with the low fat cottage cheese, low fat mozz and whole wheat pasta.
Tasty! Only part I changed was that I saved some of the mozzarella cheese for the top.
My husband and I love this recipe. I have made it for several occasions and just dinner at home. It's great!
