Meanwhile, cook ground turkey in a skillet over medium heat until browned. Combine tomatoes, asparagus, onion, basil, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Add to browned ground turkey in the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Pour in chicken broth and cook until asparagus is slightly tender, about 5 more minutes.
