Delicious! Pretty quick, too. Of course, I ended up making a few changes, but the basics are the same. Rather than a can of stewed tomatoes, I used a can of diced, seasoned with basil, garlic, and oregano. Doubled the tomato sauce because I just wanted to use the whole can. I'm glad I did, because even with the extra tomato sauce I couldn't use all of the pasta I cooked, it would have been too dry. I guess I used about 2/3 of the 16 oz box that I cooked. No big deal there. I also cooked chopped onion with the turkey. As the sauce cooked, I sprinkled all kinds of spices in...it was a bit bland for our tastes without it. I added seasoned salt, paprika, red pepper, italian seasoning, extra basil, and a bunch of chili powder. So, so good, I've been thinking about the leftovers all evening. Not a fancy meal, but wonderful and filling. Thank You! (Would have been great with a salad, as suggested)

I had used chicken cut into small bits instead, but other than that, I stuck closely with the recipe. But unfortunately, it turned out really bland... Not something I would make again... :(

At our house we like spicy. To rev up this recipe I added 1/4 chopped white onion, 1/4 chopped green pepper, 1-2 chopped cloves garlic and 1 tsp. of crushed red pepper to the ground turkey before browning. This ensures the flavors will get cooked into the meat. I stuck to the original recipe to finish out the dish, but added more basil than suggested. This is a regular in our house now.

Oh I liked this ALOT. The kids went back for seconds. I would love to give this 5 stars but the recipe is far to bland...Things I did different... I added some paprika, chilli powder and italian seasonings along with some salt and pepper. I also ended up using a whole 10 oz can of tomato sauce which is more than 1 cup(what the recipe calls for). I finished off the leftovers for lunch this afternoon and it tasted just as good as it did last night for dinner. Thanks I will definately make this again with of course my added spices of preference!!

This is a good recipe. I added spicy chopped tomatoes and mushrooms. My husband claims it is a keeper. Thanks!

I spiced up the turkey by adding onions, garlic & italian seasoning to it while it browned. I didnt use the sugar or the basil when adding sauce. I used canned already seasoned diced tomatoes (instead of stewed)& a can of seasoned tomato sauce. This was VERY easy & turned out great. My husband didnt even mind that I used Turkey!

Delicious! My husband and I cannot eat red meat and he always complained that I could not make goulash like his mother's. We both loved it.

very good as written but needed a kick, so with a dash of this and a pinch of this...it turned out great.
