This simple Ground Turkey and Butternut Squash Skillet with Feta couldn't be easier and is really, really delicious. Sometimes the simplest combinations really do turn out the best. This meal started the way many meals do with me staring blankly into the fridge after getting home from a long day and needing something to eat immediately. Seeing some ground turkey and butternut squash I needed to use, I decided to start with those and then just added to the skillet as I went - some onion, some garlic, a red bell pepper, a bit of Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. And then since cheese makes everything better, some salty feta cheese, to finish things off.
