Thanks Christine for this recipe. Made it tonight and it is very good. I baked the meatballs for 15mins at 475. I also mixed the meatballs in my food processor and added oregano. The meatballs were dry and I was concerned that they would be dry in the ziti, but they were suprisingly moist after baking the casserole. Made two smaller casseroles and froze one. A note though, I did find the 1 pound ground turkey to be a bit misleading as other recipes specifically ask for cooked turkey.
This is time consuming but good.
My husband and children thought this was really bad. I found it edible but not very good. The turkey just doesn't blend with the other flavors well at all.
Made this. Only thing I would say is a recipe for tomato sauce is needed. I did crushed tomatoes (no oil, no salt, no spices), added onions, mushrooms and garlic sauteed in olive oil, salt to taste, fresh basil, oregano and a couple of thyme springs. Simmer for 2 hours.
