Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet
This is an incredibly delicious, easy, and hearty weeknight dish. It literally only requires one skillet, a few healthy ingredients, and self-control because you're going to want to eat it all in one sitting. Borrowing-chef's note: DON'T SKIP THE MOZZARELLA. Not like you would anyway because you're not a psycho, but it's an imperative part of this dish.
