Directions
1.
In a large nonstick skillet, cook onions and garlic over medium-high heat for 4 minutes or until softened. Add turkey to skillet and cook, breaking up large chunks, for about 6 minutes or until no longer pink; drain fat. Season turkey with oregano, salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, layer half the uncooked noodles, overlapping as necessary.
