Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Add olive oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and the carrots and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the garlic and continue to cook for one minute. Add the ground turkey, salt and pepper and cook until no longer pink, breaking the meat up with a spoon.
