2-½cupsfrozen cauliflower rice, thawed and well drained
1cupcanned crushed tomatoes
1cupreduced-fat shredded cheese blend, divided
1poundlead ground turkey
2cupschopped bell peppers
Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Lightly spray an 8x8-inch baking dish (or 9-inch round pie dish) with nonstick spray.
Stir together the cauliflower rice, crushed tomatoes, ½ cup cheese, garlic powder and onion powder in a large bowl until thoroughly combined.
Lightly spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey, peppers, onion, cumin and salt and cook until turkey is cooked through and the onions and peppers soften, crumbling the turkey as it cooks, about 8 minutes.
Transfer the cooked turkey mixture to the rice mixture using a large slotted spoon and stir together until well mixed.
Using a large spoon, transfer the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and cook until hot and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
Store any leftover casserole in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
I used my favorite red bell peppers when making this casserole, but feel free to substitute with green, orange or yellow bell peppers, or a combination.Rinse the frozen cauliflower under warm water and drained thoroughly in a colander or strainer. If you used unthawed and undrained frozen rice cauliflower, your casserole will probably turn out a little watery.Serving size: ¼th recipeClick here to see your WW Points for this recipe and track it in the WW app or site.6*PointsPlus (Old plan)
