Healthy Turkey Casserole Recipe

Finally, a way to eat turkey that doesn't involve hours of roasting, and a half dozen side dishes that are loaded with fat and calories! This easy, healthy recipe uses ground turkey for a rich, meaty casserole without lots of fat to slow you down.

The cabbage gives this dish a nice boost of flavor, vitamins and fiber. If you want to up the fiber content even more, substitute brown rice for the white rice the recipe calls for, just rememeber brown rice usually takes a little longer to cook, so adjust accordingly.

1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1 cup white rice, uncooked
2 cups tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
