Ground turkey hash a one pot meal

I love one pot meals, because I do not love washing up and I especially love dishes like this, that can be made ahead and provide a quick easy dinner after work, or even lunch at work.

Serves 4

1 tablespoon of olive oil
1lb ground turkey (or beef)
1 yellow onion chopped
1 clove of garlic sliced
4 ribs of celery
1 small butternut squash peeled and chopped
2 medium potatoes chopped
1 bay leaf
handful of chopped parsley
1 jalapeno pepper chopped finely
1 cup of frozen peas or edema beans
Salt and pepper to taste

Add the olive oil and turkey to a large saute pan and cook stirring often until the turkey is almost cooked through and then add the onion and garlic.

Continue to cook, until the onion is softened, then add the remaining ingredients except the peas or beans.

Stir in and cover with a lid, as I did not have a lid that fit this pot I sealed with tin foil.

Place in a 350 oven for about an hour until the potatoes and squash are soft and add the peas/beans.

Stir in and let the heat of the dish defrost them.

This could be served right away with a green salad and would serve 4 people.  I actually had this for dinner one night and took for lunch for several days.  Tasty comforting and healthy, you can not ask much more from a dish.
