Sloppy Joes weren't something I ever ate as a kid growing up and honestly it wasn't something I gave much thought to until recently when a friend told me she makes them almost weekly for her son. In the same breath, she told me that she was deeply in need of an updated, more adult friendly version so her and her husband would be happy as well. Looking at the basic recipes for sloppy joes, an Italian inspired version seems like the perfect solution. Ground turkey sausage, lean ground turkey, peppers, onions, mushrooms, crushed tomatoes, and some Italian seasoning - that's it. Cooked low and slow, it makes a delicious meal in a sandwich, over polenta, or on a bed of spaghetti squash.
