Very delicious! Total cooking time, plus prep was a little over an hour, but worth every bite. My store was out of ground turkey so I got ground chicken. I must say, ground chicken is much tastier than turkey. I think I will always make this with chicken. I didn't have Italian Seasoning so I created my own - 1/4 tsp of each of the following spices: oregano, basil, salt, black pepper, ground fennel, crushed red pepper and 1/2 tsp minced garlic. YUMMY. Also, once again I didn't read the instructions very well and I ended up using 1 full pound of ground chicken. Very meaty and Very Good! ~~~EDITED TO INCLUDE: I had the leftovers on Saturday and it was even better than the first day. Thanks Barb!~~~
Great recipe! I thought the small portions of each ingredient might not be enough but even with 3 vigorous eaters (and 3 picky ones), we still had almost half of it left. I subbed tomato paste and water for the sauce, tubetti for the fettucine, and fresh broccoli instead of frozen. For the seasoning,I used basil and oregano--next time I'll add garlic. I was in a hurry so I cooked it at 400 for 20 minutes and it turned out fine. The broccoli was a little crunchy but I should have blanched it first since it was fresh--still tasted good. This is definitely a keeper for how simple, delicious and healthy it is.
