Fast 'n Healthy: Sloppy Jennies

This slimming spin on sloppy Joes uses ground turkey instead of ground beef, with surprisingly tasty results. Tangy tomato sauce and spices ensure great flavor and moist meat in every bite.

1 medium onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 lb. extra-lean ground turkey breast
1 (8-oz.) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
4 lower-calorie hamburger buns, split, toasted

1. Cook onion and bell pepper in large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 8 minutes or until they start to brown, stirring occasionally. Add turkey; cook 4 to 6 minutes or until browned and no longer pink, stirring to crumble meat.

2. Stir in all remaining ingredients except buns. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes to blend flavors. Serve in buns.
