I know what you're thinking... that is not healthy looking.
BUT, we substituted the pasta for wheat pasta and low fat cheese. We also use a lean meat instead.
Sometimes wellness for our house is about being simple and not complicated.
My man brought this recipe home from the firehouse because it feeds a lot of people!
-1lb of lean beef
-1lb of breakfast sausage
-Garlic powder salt, pepper, chili i flakes, and Italian seasoning.
-3/4 Jar of marinara sauce
-1 block of cream cheese
-1 bag of wheat noodles
-Cook the meats together and add in seasoning
-Once meat is cooked, add in marinara sauce
-Chop block of cream cheese to add in and stir in with meat and sauce
-Add in already cooked noodles
-Add low fat Italian cheese to the top and pop it in the oven on 350 for about 7mins.
Keep in mind, this recipe is coming from a man who is not a chef but a fireman so if there are any details left out, or you have any questions, please reach out!
As notes above, this will feed a lot of people or a couple people for a couple of days!
Enjoy, and let me know your thoughts!
