This is a meal for two but of very small portions because I am diabetic and cannot handle too many carbs. It's incredibly flavorful and is actually quite filling because of the amount of fiber in this dish. It is purposely made with a small amount of pasta because I can easily go over my carbs for a meal by eating too much pasta.

This was a recent recipe in Taste of Homes "Healthy Cooking" that I revamped to make even lighter and healthier. I substituted ground turkey for the beef and used fat free sour cream and cheese instead of reduced fat, which cut 90 calories from their light version. The results were fabulous and a hit with my whole family. Proof that low fat can taste good!
