  1. Over a medium heat, saute onion, garlic, and bell pepper in a skillet until tender.
  2. Add ground turkey to sauteed vegetable; add seasonings and cook over medium heat until turkey is done.

    NOTE: I add cayenne to many of my dishes simply because it opens those taste buds to all the wonderful flavors.
  3. Add spaghetti sauce and mushroom; bring to slow bowl, reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.

    Serve over pasta.
