    Delicious...I changed it a bit. I didn't have 2 cups of mushrooms so I added two small red skinned potatoes and two hand fulls of broccoli. Turned out really good. Definitely worth doing again.

    I think next time I will cut the turkey up into small pieces but otherwise this is wonderful!

    I sauteed the garlic in olive oil, with a little butter, then I used chicken tenders in place of the turkey, since I didn't have any, removed and the cooked the mushrooms until they browned not turning, then added the broth etc, the only other thing I changed was add half the tomato paste. My husbandjust loved it, he's a great fan of sauces.will definitely do again.

    I liked this dish. I used olive oil instead of butter to saute the garlic. The only thing I would change in the future would be to saute the mushrooms before adding the broth. Cooking the mushrooms in the broth took a lot longer. I think it would be quicker to saute the mushrooms, then when they are tender, add the tomato paste and broth. I think it will cut down on the broth a bit as well. I found it to be too runny and added some cornstarch to thicken it up a bit. With the changes listed, I will be making this again.
