    Could you post the nutrition info for the turkey version of this recipe too?

    • Derek Howes on July 11, 2013 at 12:00 am

      It would depend on how lean the ground turkey you’re using is but it would be fairly close to the same values (if using the same leanness in turkey)

    Wow, this is pretty solid actually. I didnt have green peppers or parsley on hand but had everything else. Since I also didnt have a clean bread baking pan I put it in a casserole dish and it came out looking like Chicago style Stuffed pizza.

    seriously though, Ill be making this so much more often now.

    What is the serving size?

  8. Chris on November 14, 2015 at 12:00 am

    D: Just realized you have an error in the recipe: You state TABLESPOONS of Parmesan cheese, but your weight states 15g, which is equivalent to 3 TEASPOONS.
