You'll Need:
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
2 Tbsp tomato paste
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
10-12 shakes Tabasco or other hot sauce
Salt and black pepper to taste
4 whole-wheat or sesame rolls, split and toasted

How to Make It:
*Heat the oil in a large skillet or saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook for about 2 minutes, until softened. Add the turkey and cook, using a wooden spoon to break up the meat, until the turkey is lightly browned. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire, chili powder, and hot sauce and season with salt and pepper.
*Turn the heat down to low. Simmer for 10 minutes, until the liquid has reduced and the sauce fully coats the meat. Divide the mixture among the rolls.
