Turkey Macaroni Casserole adapted from Mr. Food
1 pound ground turkey
1 medium-sized green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup sliced onion rings
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
8 ounces (2 cups) elbow macaroni
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 to 1 cup (2 to 4 ounces) shredded mozzarella
1.In a medium skillet, combine turkey, green pepper, and onion rings; cook until turkey is no longer pink and green pepper is tender.

2.Add tomato sauce, salt, Italian seasoning, oregano, black pepper, and garlic powder. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes.

3.Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling water, cook macaroni to desired doneness; drain.

4.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Blend milk and egg in a medium bowl. Add macaroni and meat mixture; mix well.

5.Place mixture in a greased 2-quart casserole, top with mozzarella cheese, and bake until heated through, about 20 minutes. Let stand for about 5 minutes for easier serving.

Here's what you'll need:

Chop up a green pepper.

Slice up an onion into rings.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

 Put the ground turkey on to brown.

Put the pasta on to cook.
Add the green peppers and onions to the turkey.

Once the turkey is brown, add the tomato sauce and the herbs.

Drain the pasta.

Mix an egg and the milk together.

Add the pasta.

Add the meat mixture.

Put the mixture into a greased baking dish.

Spread cheese over the top.

Put into the oven for 20 minutes or so.

Here's what you'll end up with:

 Our Thoughts:
This was an easy meal that would be great in a pinch or if you just haven't quite made it the grocery store this week!  You could add any vegetable that you have available such as shredding up some carrots or zucchini, any type of cheese, and any herbs that you wish.

I used ground turkey but, of course, you could use ground turkey or pork, as well.

Hope you enjoy!
