August Pinterest Challenge-- Weight Watchers American Chop Suey

We tried one recipe my first week on Weight Watchers that my boys loved so much they ask to make it almost every week!  I saw this pin on Pinterest and thought it looked too good not to try!  The original recipe calls for 12- 5 point servings but when I saw how small the servings would be I knew that would not hold my growing boys over until the next meal.

We made a few tweaks and adjustments over time so that the recipe would easily feed the whole family and leave us all feeling well fed when paired with a lovely green salad.  We managed to get about 8 servings at 8 points each



Ingredients: (8 points per cup serving)
1 lb 99% lean turkey breast
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 tsp Italian seasonings
16 ounce box of pasta
1 24 ounce can Hunts no sugar added pasta sauce
1 15 ounce can no salt added diced tomatoes with the juice
3/4 cup part skim shredded pizza cheese
3/4 cup shredded fat free mozzarella cheese 
15 Turkey pepperoni slices



Brown turkey in a medium sauce pan over medium heat with garlic, onion, and Italian seasonings.

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.

In a 13x9 pan combine cooked turkey, drained pasta, pasta sauce and diced tomatoes.  Top with shredded cheese and pepperoni slices if desired.


Bake in 350 degree oven until the cheese is melted and serve hot.

    1. The only way my boys noticed was that I used the ground turkey in place of ground beef; otherwise it tastes "normal."
