Turkey and asparagus get together in a low fat dish that cooks in no time, making it the perfect, flavorful recipe for those busy weeknights when time is scarce. To save time, prep the vegetables the night before; when it's time to cook, the slicing and dicing is already done!

This was good. I used the turkey strips that are already sliced up from the meat department at the store and I added zucchini and sliced onions with some worcestershire sauce and a few dashes of poultry seasoning and seasame seed oil. Served with some wild rice Turned out nice :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!
