Jason’s Turkey Sloppy Joes

I handed this recipe off to Jason to prepare a few weeks ago and he said it was extremely easy to make. While you could easily open a can of Manwich when you’re in the mood for Sloppy Joes, this is a healthier and tastier option. The original recipe is from good old Rachel Ray’s Everyday Food – the woman notorious for delicious and quick meal ideas.
