This is one of my favorite ground turkey recipes. It is super easy, wicked tasty and healthy too. Prep time is only 5 minutes so this is a perfect last minute recipe. This recipe comes from Great American Recipes. I started collecting their recipe cards back in the early 90's, and out of the hundred of cards I have in my collection, this one was my all time go to recipe. With all the moving I have done over the past decade, they got boxed up and never to be heard from again. That was until this move, I knew this was my favorite move yet :)
So for my family this past week, I made them. Smelling the aromatic herbs while it cooked brought back so many memories of days past. I am glad I can now share this with my family, and they all loved it as much as I do.
