I agree with Pardeemom. It definitely needs more seasoning. But with dded spice, it is a good, easy recipe. I only had 1.5 pounds of ground turkey to use. I added several small minced cloves of garlic with the other vegetables. I used a total of 3.5 cups of water and used 2 tsp. vegetable broth powder in place of the beef broth.Then, when it was finished, I added 1 tsp. of garlic powder and 1 tsp. oregano. Thanks for a great idea!

A good basic recipe. I did make some changes. I used 1 lb. of extra lean ground beef instead of turkey. I then added 1 clove of garlic, 1 t. worcestershire and 1 t. oregano. I also put in 3/4 c. additional water. It could have used a bit more spice but it was a nice dinner. Thanks!
