From: "Lisabeth Crawford (Pooh)" <104105.1416@...> Suggestion: for 2 servings, use a small aluminum foil pan about 4 x 8 inches or press a sheet of aluminum foil into a loaf pan and set the foil pan on a cookie sheet. Measure half the other ingredients and freeze the remaining 3 ounces of tomato paste for a future meal.

Preheat the oven to 425 F. Cook the ground turkey in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until cooked through. Stir occasionally.

Combine flour, baking powder, and margarine in a bowl. Cut the margarine into the flour with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add enough milk to make a soft, elastic dough (like biscuit dough). Press the dough into the sides and bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan.

Combine the tomato paste and seasonings and spread over the dough. Crumble the ground turkey over the sauce. Sprinkle on the green pepper, mushrooms and cheese. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the crust is brown and crisp. Cut into four squares to serve.
