Barley Beef Skillet

I got this recipe out of "Healthy Cooking", the magazine. I am going to make it tonight for dinner ( might be tomorrow night if I don't get to the store soon since my meat spoiled).

1 lb ground turkey
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
1 can (14.5 oz) reduced sodium beef broth
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 cup water
2 small carrots chopped
1 small tomato chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
1 small zuchinni chopped
1 cup uncooked barley
2 tsp italian seasoning

In a large skillet cook beef onion and garlic; drain. Add the broth, tomato sauce and water to beef; bring to boil. Stir in remaining ingredients. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 45-50 mintues or until barley is tender.

*Update- I doubled the barley, doubled the broth and added half a cup of water. I should have also doubled the veggies and will do so next time. This meal was good but seemed to be missing a "wow" factor. However, you can't beat lean meat, veggies and whole grains! Please let me know if you try it!
