1 (14 1/2-ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water


Brown the turkey in a large pot; drain off fat. Add onion, green pepper, and garlic and cook 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for 45 minutes. Let cool. Serve with warm whole grain spaghetti noodles and a side of garlic whole wheat bread.
