Healthy Hamburger Helper

HEALTHY “Hamburger Helper”

I have never actually made or have eaten Hamburger Helper but I thought this would be what it is like EXCEPT healthier!!! So……..
Cook 1 lb lean ground meat (grass fed if you can because it is beyond delicious) or ground turkey then drain and place in 9 x 13 baking dish. Season meat with Badia seasoning and a dash of pepper and cumin or whatever you feel you may like….
Cook 2 c elbow macaroni for half the time indicated on the box then rinse in cold water and add to the baking dish.
Add: 1/3 c sour cream 1 c plain Greek yogurt 1/3 salsa 1/4 chopped pineapple 1 c chopped peppers 1/2 c chopped onion 1 c shredded Mexican cheese
Mix all together.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 min then add 1/4 whole wheat panko breadcrumbs and 1/4 c shredded Mexican cheese and bake for another 15 min.
Let it set and cool for 5 min or so then cut. This makes enough to feed an army. ***Use lean meat, whole wheat/grain noodles and Greek yogurt to make sure this is a healthier version! Enjoy! xo-A
