It must be these frigid temperatures because all I want lately is comfort food. I'm back on Weight Watcher though so my meals must all be friendly. This one definitely passed the test. It's easy and filling too.

10 oz. 93% lean ground turkey
1 clove of garlic, diced finely
2 cans (8 oz. each) of low sodium tomato sauce
7 oz. Ronzoni Smart Taste elbows
1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Cook the pasta according to the box directions. Meanwhile, saute the garlic about 1 minute in a pan coated with cooking spray. Add in the ground turkey and cook until meat is browned. Add in the tomato sauce, still well and remove from the heat. Place the cooked noodles into an 8x8 pan spray with cooking spray. Mix in the turkey and sauce. Top with the cheese. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.

Serves 4.
8 WW points per serving

Told you it was easy!

Are you doing points, or the new plan (that I have no idea about yet)?

Comfort food that is WW friendly is definitely a bonus.

Looks great!

The new plan still uses points, so yes, I am counting them. They just changed up their system a little.

Good luck on WW - its a great program. This dish certainly does look comforting. Something about pasta and cheese is just sooo good!
