Cheeseburger Pasta


Maybe it should be Turkey Burger Pasta?

This recipe is like homemade hamburger helper. Just as easy and so much better for you! I lightened it up a little more than the original recipe by using ground turkey breast and reduced fat cheese. Another winner from Allison, earning 5 stars from Zach!

Cheeseburger Pasta

Ingredients:

1 lb ground turkey breast
2 3/4 cups water
1/3 cup ketchup
1 tsp onion powder
2 cups elbow mac, uncooked (I used shells)
4 oz reduced fat velveeta, cubed

Directions:

Brown meat in a large skillet, drain.
Add water, ketchup, onion powder and mix well.
Bring to a boil and add mac. Simmer on med-low heat, covered, for 8-10 minutes (until pasta tender).
Stir in velveeta and cook until melted, stirring occasionally.


ZACH'S RATING - *****
