  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Stir the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl; set aside on counter to allow to come to room temperature.
  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil; cook the penne in the boiling water until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  4. While the pasta cooks, place a skillet over medium heat. Crumble the turkey into the skillet; cook and stir until the turkey is completely browned. Drain and add to the pasta.
  5. Spread 2 tablespoons of the spaghetti sauce into the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish; stir the rest of the spaghetti sauce into the pasta and turkey mixture. Spoon about half of the pasta mixture into the baking dish; top with the cheese mixture and spread into an even layer. Spread the remaining pasta mixture over the cheese layer. Cover with aluminum foil if desired.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until slightly brown on top, about 30 minutes.

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 re...

After reading other reviews, I made a few changes. I used low fat cottage cheese instead of ricotta and I added oregano and 6 cloves of garlic to the cheese mixture, with these changes, the fla...

Tasty! Only part I changed was that I saved some of the mozzarella cheese for the top.

This is great. My husband almost ate the entire pan!

My husband and I love this recipe. I have made it for several occasions and just dinner at home. It's great!

This was very good! I only gave it four stars because I needed to add extra sauce and spices to give it a little more flavor. I used extra garlic, sauteed the turkey with onions (and more garlic...
