I didn't have anything for dinner the other night and had a package of Italian ground turkey. I search my cupboard and came up with this. It was a hit even with my 5 yr old granddaughter! My daughter even begged for the leftovers for her lunch at work.

How to Make Easy Italian Casserole


  • 1Brown the turkey and when it's about half browned add the chopped pepper(s). Cook until turkey shows no pink and the pepper is beginning to soften.
  • 2While the turkey and peppers are cooking, cook the pasta.
  • 3Add the can of olives (I used the water in it, too) and the stewed tomatoes (which I sort of chopped up a bit for smaller bits).
  • 4Drain pasta and add to meat mixture and serve.

    If you can figure out how much water to use and cook the pasta in the same pot as the meat mixture, that would be great! We really enjoyed this with a salad.
