This is GREAT! I'm not generally a fan of sweet potatoes, but I do like them in soups so I decided to try this. I left out the meat, mainly because I didn't want to have 1/2 pound of turkey left over. I actually think the meat is unnecessary and loved it without! This is a wonderfully colorful dish and very visually appealling. Based on previous reviews about undercooked potatoes, I diced mine and had no problems. Served with dinner rolls to sop up liquid. I will make this again and share it with my Weight Watchers members!
