Simple Turkey & Spinach Flatbread

This is my favorite quick meal on a weeknight. Nothing about it disappoints. The simplicity of it is what makes it so satisfying I think. Leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day. I found this recipe in a magazine several years ago, and it's the one staple I always return to. The spinach makes the dish taste so clean and fresh. You'll think you're putting in too much spinach, but remember how much it cooks down. If you use organic turkey meat, the dish will taste that much better.

Paprika Ground Turkey Flatbread with Spinach and Cheese

1 lb ground turkey
4 cups spinach
2 medium onions
salt, pepper, paprika
olive oil
1/2 cup jalapeno pepper jack cheese
3 pita rounds/flatbread

Coarsely chop the onions and sautee in olive oil until just starting to brown. Add the turkey meat and seasonings and cook through. Once the turkey meat is starting to brown, add the spinach. Stir in well until the spinach is wilted. Shred the cheese and toast the flatbread. Serve the turkey-spinach mixture on the flatbread and top with cheese. Enjoy! Serves two for dinner, with enough left over for lunch the next day (1/2 a pita each).
