excellent recipe! i didn't prepare ahead or i would have made this in the crock pot so i ended up making it the traditional way in the oven for dinner. i did add some chopped bell pepper, chili powder, garlic, cumin, and cumin powder to the turkey. I also used shredded cooked turkey that i had leftover instead of ground. I actually liked it better with the shredded meat instead of ground. Also, instead of mixing in the shredded cheese with the spinach-ricotta mixture i just sprinkled it on top as its own layer. Thanks so much for a wonderful base recipe!
