Comforting, filling, delicious and nutritious. You can make it in advance until it's ready to go into the oven right before dinnertime. The recipe is made lighter with turkey sausage and is high in protein.

After baking for 20-25 minutes, stick a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, you're done!
