Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How to make ground turkey taste the best?

Ground turkey is lean like chicken. However, I suggest buying the fattier version of ground turkey for this recipe if your local store has options. The key to the best ground turkey recipes are adding in fat. Fat will make the recipe take better along with other seasonings. The pasta noodles, sauce and cheese will already bring moisture and flavor to the lean meat.
