Turkey S'getti from mel.d
Yields a big breakfast for one person. 


1/2 to 1 pound ground turkey 
cooking oil
1 small onion, chopped
Yellow squash, green squash, bell peppers or other vegetables, cut into pieces
2 cloves garlic
1 large can Italian-style chopped tomatoes
Bay leaf, Basil, oregano, etc. to taste
1 tbsp. powdered soy milk (regular, not vanilla)
1 banana (fresh or frozen)
1/3 - 3/4 c. frozen fruit (raspberries, peaches, strawberries, 'berry medley', etc. - sometimes I throw in fresh fruit like watermelon or canteloupe, too, but always something frozen for coldness sake)

Optional things:
squirt of ginseng (for those brain-dead days)
Brewer's yeast (1 scoop - lots of vitamins!)
Wheat germ (1 scoop - I don't like it but mom swears by it)
Protein powder (as above)
Sugar (spoonful or so - but doesn't really need it)


    Brown a package of ground turkey.

    Saute the onion in a bit of oil. When it's got that limp, glazed look, add it to the turkey.

    Use the small pan (with leftover oil) to quickly sautee the other veggies and garlic over high heat - .

    Add the veggies and chopped tomatoes to the meat. 

    Season to taste .

    Simmer over med-low for at least 20 minutes (can cook up to an hour if you keep the heat low & watch it doesn't get too dry.) 

    While he sauce cooks, prepare the pasta. 

    Mix and enjoy - it's good on the day you make it, even better as leftovers. I feed the family the first night and take the rest to work as my lunch.

    I know it's not earth-shattering or anything, but it is simple and tasty and pretty healthy, and the kid likes it almost as much as the grown-ups, so I figure that counts for something!

  1. (Oh, and sometimes I use TVP and/or that fake ground meat stuff - morningstar farms or whoever - but I do like the turkey or turkey/TVP combo best for flavor.)
