Sloppy Joe Casserole
Makes 8 servings
1 pkg shell macaroni (8 oz)
1 envelope Sloppy joe mix (French's 1 1/2 oz)
1/2 lb ground white meat skinless turkey, cooked and drained
1 (6oz) can tomato paste
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1 (16 oz) carton 1%low-fat cottage cheese
1 cup grated Alpine Lace non-fat cheddar cheese or (8oz) Kraft Free cheese slices
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook macaroni per package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, prepare seasoning mix with turkey, tomato paste and tomato sauce,
cottage cheese and one cup water. In a 2 1/2 qt casserole, that has been sprayed
with a non-fat cooking spray, layer half the macaroni and half the meat sauce; repeat.
Top with grated cheese or cheese slices.
Bake, uncovered, 40-50 minutes, or until bubbling.
Note: If in a hurry, a large can of prepared Sloppy Joe Sauce
(Hunts Manwich Sloppy Joe) can be substituted for the tomato products
and the dry mix. Also works okay if all ingredients except cheese, is mixed
together and baked instead of layering.
