“The combination of lemon, feta and oregano give the turkey bright and fresh flavor,” writes Tina Scarpaci of Chandler, Arizona. “That's something you don't often get from your higher calorie frozen pastries.”
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min.
- 1/3 pound lean ground turkey
- 1 small garlic clove, minced
- 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 cup frozen peas, thawed

- In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook turkey and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
- Remove from the heat. Stir in the cheese, peas, red pepper, onion, parsley, lemon juice and peel, oregano, salt and pepper.
