I have made this 5 times now. It sounds weird, but it is so, so good. For a quick weeknight meal, that's healthy and delicious this is one of my regulars. I don't really LIKE ground turkey, but I know it's a healthy protein so I try to get it into the weekly menu at least once. Ever since I tried it I've been trying to add currants and pine nuts to everything because the combo is amazing!
