This come's from the Libby's website. The ground turkey and pumpkin make it very healthy! I know the pumpkin sounds a little funny, but trust me it's so delcious and comforting on a chilly fall night. It is pretty quick to prepare, but you could also brown the meat and then combine all inredients in the crockpot and let it cook all day. I also add some ground cinnamon.
