Ingredients

    * 540 g President's Choice Air Chilled EXRA LEAN MINCED TURKEY with Seasoning
    * 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
    * Fresh ground Sea Salt and Black Pepper, to taste (((NOT included in tracker nutritional information!)))
    * 20g Garlic, minced (about 4 cloves, +/-)
    * 500g Onions, chopped (2 medium red onions, +/-)
    * 440g Mushrooms, chopped (about 16 larger-sized white mushrooms, trimmed, +/-)
    * 515g Green Bell Peppers, chopped (4 small-to-average peppers, +/-)
    * 620g Baby Zucchini, sliced (3 large, +/-)
    * 2 whole cans (680ml each, 1360ml total) Primo Thick & Zesty Garlic & Herb Pasta Sauce (or anything about 70 calories and 1g fat per 1/2 cup serving!)
    * 2 tbsp. Italian Seasoning, or enough to suit your taste (((NOT included in tracker nutritional information!)))

Directions

1. In a non-stick skillet, cook the ground turkey until it is no longer pink. Set aside.
2. Heat the olive oil, salt and pepper (to taste) in a large pot (think dutch oven sized pot).
3. Add the onions, and allow to carmelize for a few minutes before adding the mushrooms. Sautee over medium-high heat for a few minutes.
4. Next add the bell peppers and zucchini. Sautee for a few minutes more.
5. When the vegetables are crisp-tender, lower the heat a bit and add the Italian seasoning, the reserved cooked turkey, and the jar of pasta sauce. Stir and heat until it bubbles a bit, and then lower the heat to simmer the sauce, and reduce the liquid a bit.
6. Makes 11 cups / servings. Enjoy over whole wheat pasta with some shredded Parmesan or Asiago (NOT included in tracker!) sprinkled on top!!! :)
