Trashy Thursday (Cheeseburger Mac Attack)

I think I've really out done myself on the trashy meals. 

I know, I know.  You're probably thinking "Really? You've found something trashier than tater tot casserole and biscuit pizza?"

Why yes.  Yes I have.  And it is called Hungry Girl's Cheeseburger Mac Attack. 

Hang on kids, this one's a doozey.


Cheeseburger Mac Attack
adapted from Hungry Girl

1 1/4 cup of dried small pasta (elbow mac, small penne, whatevs)
16 oz lean ground turkey
1 tsp garlic
1/2 onion, chopped
2 tbl of ketchup
24 oz frozen cauliflower with light cheese sauce (like Green Giant)
2 scallions, chopped
3 wedges of light creamy laughing cow wedges

Cook pasta according to the package directions, drain and set aside. 

Spray a soup pot with cooking spray.  Add the onion, garlic and turkey meat.  Cook until done, drain if needed.  Once fully cooked, add the ketchup. 

While the meat is cooking, cook the cauliflower.  Mine cooked in the microwave for about 11 minutes. 

Stir in the pasta, the cauliflower, the scallions, and the laughing cow cheese into the turkey meat mixture.  Heat until cheese is melted.  Season with salt and pepper if needed.

Serving size 1 cup (makes about 8)
Points plus 5

So trashiness aside...this was pretty good!  The cauliflower was a great way to get veggies, the laughing cow gave it a lovely, creamy goodness.  This one's a keeper!
