Preparation tips you can include in your blog post:

You can swap out the ground beef for ground turkey if desired.

You can use a basic italian seasoning blend in place of the dried oregano, basil and parsley.

The Worcestershire sauce adds a real nice, smoky depth in the background. You can add more or less to taste.
