YUM! My picky 9 year old ate 3 servings and would have eaten more if there was any left. I added extra 2 tsp of organic chicken boullion and 2 tbsp organic taco seasoning. Deleted the green peppers and did not remove meat when I put the pasta in (but I did put a lid on). WONDERFUL! Thanks!!
The 5 stars is from my husband. His reaction was great. I doubled the recipe, left out the celery and green pepper, used splenda for the sugar and didn't add the parsley or garlic salt (used a heaping tbsp of minced garlic at the begining and added table salt). I also might have added a bit more vinegar since I put 2 serving Tbsp in rather than the 2 regular Tbsp (remember, I doubled). I also didn't add my pasta by the cup, just used a bag of whole wheat wide egg noodles. I also didn't follow the directions exactly. I browned the turkey with the onion and added everything except the pasta and the cheese. I added the pasta after it came to a boil and after it cooked I added the cheese and stirred it in. DH LOVED this and I will be making this again. Its also Weight Watcher Core friendly which makes me happy. Thanks for posting.
Great recipe! I made a few changes to suit my family. I started the ground turkey then added onions, green, red, and orange pepper. I was in a hurry so in another pot I starred to boil the chicken broth that I cut with water. When pasta was done I just ladled in the pasta and the amount of liquid that I wanted. And when I served it I added taco cheese on top! So good!
