      This was really good! It was pretty easy to throw together. I used ground turkey instead of chicken. Next time I might use more zucchini and bigger pieces of it, as it seemed to disappear in the final dish. I think this would lend itself well to other veggies also, or some different type of bean if you couldn't find fava beans (I had a hard time finding them for some reason). Thank you!
