Italian Turkey Sloppy Joes

While I've posted a few variations on the traditional sloppy joe recipe, I've never been a huge fan of the original ones. So, when I found a recipe for Italian Sloppy Joe's from the Pioneer Woman I decided that I had to make them. Well, another variation of them. I decided to use lean ground turkey instead of ground beef and I substituted Cibatta Texas Toast instead of regular since it actually had less fat and calories. This was really good. Wait, I actually loved it! (and that says a lot coming from a non sloppy joe lover!)

Cal 393, Carbs 20g, Fiber 2g, Fat 19g, Protein 33g
NOTE-If making a sandwich using an additional slice of bread just add another 3 points

1 lb lean ground turkey (I like Jennie-O 93/7)
1 Cup Marinara Sauce
2 tablespoons italian seasoning blend
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I used 2 percent)
4 slices Texas Toast (I used Cibatta Texas Toast)

Brown ground turkey and drain. Add italian seasoning and marinara sauce. Simmer 10 minutes. While sauce is simmering cook bread according to package instructions. Spoon 1/2 cup of the sauce mixture onto the texas toast. Add cheese and broil for 2-3 minutes on high or until cheese is melted brown and bubbly. Enjoy! Serves 4.
