    •1 package (16 ounces) elbow macaroni
    •3/4 pound lean ground turkey
    •1/2 cup finely chopped celery
    •1/2 cup shredded carrot
    •1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
    •1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
    •1/2 cup water
    •1 envelope sloppy joe mix
    •1 small onion, finely chopped
    •1 tablespoon butter
    •1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    •1 teaspoon ground mustard
    •3/4 teaspoon salt
    •1/4 teaspoon pepper
    •4 cups skim milk

    •8 ounces reduced-fat process cheese (Velveeta), cubed

•Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook the turkey, celery and carrot over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender; drain.

•Drain macaroni; set aside. In a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, mustard, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in the process cheese until melted. Add macaroni and 1 cup cheddar cheese; mix well.

Spoon remaining macaroni mixture around edges of pan. Cover and bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese. Cover and let stand until cheese is melted. Yield: 10 servings.
