Grand Prize Winner from Taste of Home's Ultimate Potluck Recipe Contest (by Melissa Millwood). Made this for dinner last night and was skeptical, but it was delicious. A little spicy for kids (used Frank's Red Hot) but very well received by the adults. Didn't have any ground chicken so used shredded leftover turkey breast and would do so again! Also used 28 ounce can of ground tomatoes instead of 14 ounce diced and would do so again! Might yet experiment with cream cheese. Had neither fresh parsley nor Italian seasoning on hand and enjoyed it without.
