Turkey Asparagus Stir-Fry

Twenty minutes is all you'll need to make this quick stir-fry. Lean turkey, asparagus and mushrooms make it super nutritious, too. —Darlene Kennedy, Galion, Ohio

    Love this recipe--the turkey really adds a new perspective on stir-fry. All those good-for-you veggies are a bonus as well. Added some red pepper flakes for a little zing. Highly recommend this recipe.
