Ground Turkey and Sweet Potato Skillet

This is a very quick meal to make, perfect if you work during the day. I omitted the cheese and added asparagus, so I made this a one-pan meal. Feel free to add other vegetables and spices to your liking. I partially cooked the sweet potatoes and the asparagus in the microwave to make it even faster.

  5. Add the sweet potato, red chili flakes, salt, and pepper. Asparagus was added to this. Cover the skillet. Cook until the sweet potatoes are tend, stirring occasionally.
  6. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  7. When the sweet potatoes are tender, add the shredded mozzarella cheese, and put the skillet in the oven to melt the cheese.
