Cheeseburger Mac Attack (Crockpot)

Another by Hungry Girl. This was mediocre, and I didn't have veggies w/ cheese, so I put a little sour cream in to make it creamier.

  • 5 oz. (about 1 1/4 cups) uncooked wheat elbow macaroni
  • 16 oz. extra lean ground beef, raw
  • 2 tbsp. reduced sugar ketchup
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • 1 bag frozen cauliflower and low-fat cheese sauce (I used a bag of brocolli/cauliflower mix and added 2 tbsp of fat free sour cream, since I didn't have this).
  • 3 wedges The Laughing Cow Light cheese (pick your flavor)
  • salt and black pepper

  1. In a large pot, prepare pasta very al dente. Drain well and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine beef, ketchup, and minced onion. Mix well. Add frozen cauliflower and cheese sauce and gently mix. Transfer mixture to a crock pot.
  3. Add cooked pasta to the crock pot and gently stir. Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or on low for 7 - 8 hours, until the turkey is fully cooked. (Stir occasionally!)
  4. Add cheese wedges, and stir until evenly distributed.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Makes 4 servings.
