This recipe was developed to ensure that the ground turkey could sop up all that sauce-y goodness—without drying out. Serve these fabulously messy sandwiches with fresh coleslaw that has a quick red wine vinegar and sour cream dressing. If you end up with leftover coleslaw, add it to a rice bowl. Also, add a little more tomato sauce to any leftover meat, then serve it over pasta.
