Food: Skinny Turkey Rigatoni

skinnyrigatoni

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups (32 oz.) of tomato sauce (I used Prego Traditional)
  • 1 lb. of ground turkey
  • 4 cups of cooked rigatoni, look for a whole wheat option (about 2 1/2 cups uncooked pasta)
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) of shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 (1 oz.) of grated fresh parmesan cheese

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Boil water in a pot, cook rigatoni to al-dente (about 9 minutes).
  • Drain water from pasta.
  • Cook ground turkey in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-hot heat until browned. Stir to crumble.
  • Drain ground turkey well.
  • Spray 11 x 7 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Combine turkey, rigatoni, tomato sauce, and 1 cup of mozzarella in baking dish.
  • Top with 1/2 cup of mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. *Note: Make sure to cover every bit of pasta in sauce and cheese, if not…the pasta will be too firm.

I hope you enjoy this delicious meal! I’ve made it several times for my family and friends and it’s always a hit!

xoxo, Megan
