This was really good! Filling and rich tasting, it didn't taste like a "lite" casserole. I used sauteed ground turkey for the meat and did include the optional tomato slices. Served this with sauteed broccoli and red bell pepper and it was a good combination; I was thinking while I ate that if I wanted to make this a meatless dish I would just use those veggies instead of the turkey. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2012
This was a good, basic dish. I put it together the night before, so all I had to do the next day was pop it in the oven. To pump up the flavor I would add some salt and pepper and increase the pesto. I would also increase the meat by another cup and decrease the pasta by 1/2 cup (but I guess that depends on whether your feeding carnivores or starch-aholics).
Wow, this was good! I used cooked, cubed chicken breasts since I have no leftover turkey. We were really impressed... I think next time I might use just a touch more pesto, but that's about the only change I would make to this quick and easy recipe.
