Recipe adapted from Light & Tasty to use lean ground turkey instead of turkey sausage. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like a good autumn recipe.

- 4.92-9.85 ml italian seasoning
- salt & pepper
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced

- 411.06 g can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 473.18 ml thinly sliced carrots

- Cook turkey with 1-2 tsp Italian seasoning, salt & pepper, onion, and garlic, breaking up turkey as it cooks, until turkey is no longer pink. Drain any excess fat.

This is a very good Minestrone Soup. Loaded with vegetables, just the way I like it. I didn't change a thing and it was perfectly seasoned. :)
