Made this for just the 2 of us, & as much as I liked the use of ground turkey & the whole-wheat pasta, I had to opt for a mild cheddar (as did the previous reviewer)! I also seasoned it with lemon pepper & just a dash of salt! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC recipe tag]

This reminded me of a Midwestern childhood staple. I used a bit of cheddar rather than the cheez whiz. Thanks for a comforting trip down memory lane, tlparsons #2.
