Wonderful recipe. I didn't have mushrooms so I added red and yellow bell pepper as well as substituting the red sauce for alfredo sauce and it was superb!!!

Cooked exactly as directed the recipe is quite bland...definitely not a repeat. Leave the pasta out of turkey mixture & cook it seperately, may help. My husband had to add hot sauce to make it more pleasurable to eat. Leave out the mozerella and add parmesan on top when serving.
