Tuesday - Easy Tex-Mex Bake - 7/28

Easy Tex-Mex Bake: from my “Treasury of Light Cooking” cookbook

Ingredients:
8 ounces penne pasta
1 pound ground turkey
1 10ounce frozen thawed and drained
2/3 cup salsa
1 16 ounce container low fat cottage cheese
1 TBS (I use much more b/c we love cilantro) chopped fresh cilantro
½ tsp ground white pepper
¼ tsp ground cumin
½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Directions:
Cook pasta, drain and rinse.

Spray a skillet with PAM and cook turkey until cooked through. Add corn and salsa. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl combine cottage cheese, egg, white pepper and cumin. Mix well.

In an 11&1/2x7&1/2 baking dish (I just use an oval shaped, deep casserole dish) spoon half of the turkey mixture. Top with pasta. Spoon cottage cheese mixture over pasta and top with the rest of the turkey mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 25-30 min or until heated through.

Serve with Bagged Salad.
