Ingredients

  • 1 (5-6) oz Can of Tomato Paste + 1 Can of Water (Use Tomato Paste Can)
  • 1 Teaspoon Each of the following:
  • Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Dried Basil, Dried Parsley, Dried Thyme, Fresh Cracked Black Pepper & Salt
  • Up to 2.5 Tablespoons of Granulated Splenda (More or less depending on your taste)**

Instructions
  1. Spray your slow cooker with vegetable cooking spray.
  2. Combine the tomato purees, paste, dried seasonings, and Splenda into slow cooker and stir to combine.
  3. In a large saute pan that has been sprayed with vegetable cooking spray, brown ground turkey breast along with onion, green peppers and garlic.
  4. Drain well. Separate the turkey meat well in pan.  I use this fantastic tool to chop up the meat perfectly while in the pan.  Add ground turkey meat and vegetables into the slow cooker with the tomato mixture.
  5. Put lid on slow cooker and turn on low for 6 hours. Garnish with Chopped Tomatoes & Fresh Herbs, Optional
  6. Each serving is a heaping cup. *On the WW Personal Points plan, if you chose Turkey Breast as a 0 Point Food, each serving will be 1 PP. If you did not chose Turkey as a 0 Point Food, each serving will be 3 PP.
  7. *If you did choose Ground Turkey Breast as a 0 Point Food, since you "earn" 1 Point back for eating vegetables, it's basically 0 PP per serving!
