Mmmm, yummy! This will be fixed again! The only directions I didn't follow was to add the cooked ground turkey to the casserole before mixing up the rest. The onion and red pepper was added to the turkey and everything mixed into the skillet. I love a dish that has it all, and this one certainly does. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Liisa.
