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, +/-)
    * 230g Onions, chopped (1 medium red onion, +/-)
    * 230g Mushrooms, chopped (1 8-oz. container white mushrooms, trimmed, +/-)
    * 330g Green Bell Peppers, chopped (3 small-to-average peppers, +/-)
    * 315g Red Bell Peppers, chopped (3 small-to-average peppers, +/-)
    * 1 can (680ml) Primo Thick & Zesty Garden Tomato & Mushroom Pasta Sauce (or anything about 75 calories and 1.5g fat per 1/2 cup serving!)
    * 1 can (796 ml / 28 oz.) Crushed Tomatoes
    * 2 tbsp. Dried Basil or 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 sautee for a few minutes more.
5. When the vegetables are crisp-tender, lower the heat a bit and add the Basil and / or Italian seasoning, the reserved cooked turkey, the crushed tomatoes, 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. Simmer for about 30 minutes on low.
6. Makes 9 cups / servings. Enjoy over whole wheat pasta with some shredded Parmesan or Asiago (NOT included in tracker!) sprinkled on top!!! :)
