“I love pasta but it is not always the healthiest thing to have for dinner. To make this one a little less guilty, I use turkey and add a carrot to the sauce. So tasty!” - by MakeItHealthy
Original recipe yields 10 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C). Lightly butter a 9x13-inch baking dish.
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ziti pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain.

"Simply delicious! And to think this is a healthier version of an all time favorite makes it even better. This is very easy to throw together and perfect for a hearty weeknight meal. So if your're in ..." See morethe mood for Italian but think you don't have the time - think again. I added some fresh minced garlic to the ground turkey and onion. And, to the sauce I added a little red wine and some Italian seasoning to give a bit of a flavor boost. The sour cream was a nice change from the usual ricotta cheese as well as the carrot. I just eyeballed everything when layering. I covered it and baked it a little longer than 30 minutes leaving it uncovered for the last 10 minutes. Great with a fresh garden salad and warm bread!"
"A great re-make of one of my favorites. I didn't think that the 50 Calorie per serving difference between the original and this recipe was that significant. I used Whole Wheat Pasta, only 1 cup (8 o..." See morez) of sour cream, which I stirred into the pasta before layering. I used only 3 slices of Provolone cheese. These changes knock a few more calories off and the family didn't even notice. Good stuff!"
