This is one of those simple recipes that you will quickly fall in love with. Not only is it ready in under thirty minutes and extremely affordable, it is packed with flavor and makes a comforting weeknight meal. The combination of ground turkey (you could use beef, chicken, or vegetarian crumbles), potatoes, tomatoes, and peas makes a hearty and satisfying meal. I like to serve it with cauliflower rice, spaghetti squash, or polenta.
