      After his first bite DH said "this one's a keeper," and I think he's right! I couldn't find hot italian turkey sausage, so I used sweet italian turkey sausage with about 1/4 t red pepper flakes thrown into the mix. I also doubled the garlic, as we are big fans. This was very pretty to look at, and DH has already asked me to make it again. Unlike other reviewers, we had no problem polishing off the whole thing!! Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Spring 2008.

      Delicious! My hunny and I have a new recipe to add to our favorites. We'll be making this *a lot*. I used turkey keilbasa for the sausage because it has such a good flavor. One warning: this makes a good amount of food, but I doubt it would be good as left overs. (the crescent rolls probably wouldn't warm up well) Of course, I can't say for sure because there weren't any leftovers! Everyone went back for seconds. ^_^

      I was a little unsure about this recipe but wanted to try something using a different kind of meat. I had a little trouble fitting all of the filling, just had to stretch the dough strips a bit to cover. We were very surprised at the taste especially since its not too bad for you. Everyone loved it, and it looks pretty too. I am adding it to our regular rotation. Thanks for the great recipe!
