An Innovative Meal

"We enjoyed this recipe with made several modifications-used couscous instead of rice, used Italian stewed tomatoes, added fresh sage and oregano, and half a jalepeno. Also, used a convection oven and it cooked up in 30 minutes. Very tasty and surprisingly filling!"

I added a little hot sauce and more onion and garlic - she's Italian - it was amazing , with a side dish of balsamic reduction asparagus and garlic . Couldn't ask for anything better

I used very lean turkey and it came out a bit dry, I will use more tomato sauce next time. Overall very enjoyable meal. Hubby, 7 year old, and 10 month old loved it!

Loved that it was so easy to make, but really tasty. I substituted yellow peppers instead of rice to cut back on the carbs, and it worked out just great.
