I love this recipe. Another amazing Pinterest find, I made it just a few days after I found it!
It combines one of my favorite vegetables – green beans – with lean ground turkey. Uh-mazing! The flavors remind me a lot of those yummy chicken lettuce wraps at PF Changs, but with extra veggies! Speaking of extra veggies, I doubled the green beans (adding a full pound!) in the dish to add extra volume and color.
Try this dish… it’s delicious and cooks up in no time!
