  • Olive oil

  • 1/2 cup peas
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Serves 4 to 6

Prep time: less than 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Coat a medium-sized saute pan with olive oil.  Place it over medium heat and add the onion and garlic.  Cook until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes.  Add the turkey and saute until it’s cooked through, about 5 minutes.  Add the pesto or sun-dried tomatoes, tomato puree, and peas and reduce the heat to low.  Simmer for about 5 more minutes and season generously with salt and pepper.

An additional note:  

Tomatoes are chock full of nutrients! They’re a super food!
