Cheeseburger Casserole Recipe

Time for a recipe share. 
One of my goals I have for myself while on Weight Watchers is to try at least 1 new recipe a month. I am hoping to actually shoot more towards a new recipe every week but let’s be real – some weeks are too busy for the crazy idea! 

I stumbled across this recipe on SkinnyTaste and decided it was a must try!  I figured Jude would love it because of the cheese and pasta and Jeremy would dig it because it is something new!  I was right!  Jude loved eating the “meatballs” and pasta and Jeremy helped himself to seconds!  I love knowing that I am serving my family yummy yet healthy food at dinner time.

If you are on Weight Watchers you must visit SkinnyTaste while planning out your meals! 

I followed Gina’s recipe for the most part did make a few MINOR changes.

Ingredients:
2 cups (6 oz) uncooked rotini pasta – used WHOLE WHEAT 
2 tsp oil 1
 1/2 cups onions, finely chopped 
1 garlic clove, finely chopped 
1 lb lean ground turkey  
3/4 tsp salt 
1/2 tsp black pepper 
3 tbsp tomato paste 
2 medium tomatoes diced
2 tbsp Dijon Mustard 
2 cups reduced fat grated cheddar cheese 
1/4 cup chopped dill pickles




Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. 

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta according to the package directions - drain well.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. 

Stir in the turkey and cook until browned; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the tomato paste, then add the tomatoes and mustard. 

Let the mixture cook until thickened, about 2 minutes.


Toss the meat mixture with the pasta and spread it into the prepared dish. 

Top with the cheddar and bake until the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.

Sprinkle the chopped pickles over the top and serve.

**Makes about 9 cups which equals about 9 servings. 

Serve with fresh veggies, we had corn!  Yummo!
