Turkey Tomato Macaroni Stew

Standard

This was one of the best stews I have had in awhile! It had great flavor & was really filling! The original recipe suggested cooking it in the crockpot, but I flaked & didn’t realize that until an hour & a half before dinner time, so I made it on the stove top.
