    This was delish! I do think it would be even better with hamburger not turkey sausage. I also did not have the cooking crème on hand so I used 8 oz. of cream cheese. I also had about a cup of spaghetti sauce in the frig so I added that too. I also had a couple sun dried tomatoes and added those too. It was very dry the next day as leftovers but still delish.
