Recipe Of The Week - Skinny Chili Mac

This was a super easy recipe to make, and it came out really good.  Spring should be here soon, but this week is still cool, so I thought it would be a great cold weather dinner.


-   1 large can Tomato Juice

-  1 28 oz. can Stewed Tomatoes

-  1 lb. Laura's Lean Ground Beef

-  1 medium Onion, chopped

-  1 tsp. Minced Garlic

-  1 can Pinto Beans, rinsed (to wash off the extra sodium)

-  1 box Whole Wheat Elbow Macaroni or Penne (my store didn't have elbow macaroni)

-  Optional:  Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1.  In a skillet brown ground beef, add onions and garlic

2.  Drain if needed

3. In a pot, add tomato juice, stewed tomatoes, meat mixture, and beans.

4.  Bring to a boil.  Add pasta and simmer until noodles are done.

5.  When serving, sprinkle a little cheddar on top.
