READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by bakedapple42

This recipe is tasty, inexpensive, so easy to prepare, and healthy for you, too! It can be served as a stew one night, then serve leftovers over egg noodles, macaroni, or rice another night. Two meals for a family of five out of one pound of ground turkey! You can substitute any vegetables that your family enjoys. My family really loves it.
