Italian Turkey

Terri Saunders


I took an Italian beef recipe and altered it to make it a little more healthy using turkey AND to serve just two people w/ a little for leftovers! I used Ora-wheat buns but you could splurge and use an Italian bread of some sort! I also sprinkled a little mozzarella cheese & browned it under the broiler before serving.
