Ingredients

  • 12-16

    oz. ground turkey or beef

  • 1/2

    onion, finely diced

  • 1/2

    tsp. garlic powder

  • 3/4

    tsp. kosher salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • 1

    tsp. dried oregano

  • 14

    oz. petite diced tomatoes, drained

  • 2

    c. chicken broth

  • 2

    c. water

  • 2 1/2

    c. uncooked macaroni

  • 4

    oz. cream cheese, cut into 1" cubes

  • 1

    c. shredded cheddar cheese (plus more for sprinkling on top if desired)

Directions

Heat a deep 12" skillet or a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray, and add ground meat, onion, garlic powder, salt, black pepper to taste, and oregano. Saute, crumbling meat as it cooks, until onions are tender and meat is cooked through. Drain and return to pan. (You may not need to drain if using very lean meat.) Pour in chicken broth, water, tomatoes, and pasta. Bring to a boil, and cook as long as recommended on pasta package. Stir occasionally to make sure noodles cook evenly. When pasta is done and most of liquid is absorbed, turn heat to medium. Stir in cream cheese and cheddar cheese until melted and creamy sauce has formed. Allow to stand for a few minutes to allow sauce to thicken up a bit before serving. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over individual servings if desired.
