MIM #3 - Menu Item Monday

As promised, here is the recipe for Turkey Noodle Bake. It was delicious (and easy to boot)!

Turkey Noodle Bake - serves 3-4
1/2 lb. ground lean turkey
8 ounce can tomato sauce with garlic freshly ground black pepper
4 to 5 ounces whole grain wide noodles (mine were Ronzoni)
1/4 cup light sour cream
2/3 cup 1% cottage cheese
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 ounce grated sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown ground turkey in a non-stick pan. Drain off the fat. Add freshly ground black pepper and the tomato sauce to the drained ground turkey. Turn down the heat and let simmer until noodle mixture is made.
Boil the noodles till al dente. Drain the noodles and return to the pan.
Add sour cream, cottage cheese and sliced green onions to the noodles. Stir gently till mixed.
Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick spray. Pour the noodle mixture in evenly. Top evenly with the ground turkey mixture. Sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese on top.
Bake for 20 minutes. Serve with a tossed salad. Enjoy!

Total calories for Turkey Noodle Bake is approximately 1350. If serving 3, it is about 450 calories per serving and for 4 servings, about 337 per serving.

If I make it again, I would probably use regular sour cream. DH says he doesn't taste the difference but I do!
