Mexican Goulosh

Some days  just don't go as "planned".  It is on those nights that I need to make a quick meal. Hopefully a meal everyone will like and eat with NO complaining. So this is one of those dishes we all like. 
*Bonus that it's Healthy & lower in Calories.

Another  bonus is that it is a skillet stove top meal! (keep the heat outside!)
In the theme of keeping this lower in calories & healthy I use extra lean ground beef or turkey, along with using whole wheat pasta & light cheese. 

1 lb. ground extra lean beef or turkey
1 (10 oz.) Mild Rotel tomato with green chili's
1 Med. White Onion
1 (15.25 oz.) Canned Corn; drain
1 (8 oz.) Hunts Tomato Sauce; I like the Basil, garlic, Oregano style
1 C. Light 2% Shredded cheese
8 0z. Cooked Pasta; we like the Whole wheat shells

Brown the meat in a large skillet  using any seasonings you like. I season mine with cumin, garlic powder, Pepper, chili powder and onion salt. While the meat is cooking, boil the noodles and  slice the onion into thin slices. When meat is cooked turn down the heat. Place onion slices on top of meat. Now it is just doing the layering of the remaining ingredients. Rotel then corn followed by the tomato sauce. Drain cooked pasta and spread evenly over all. Finish it off with the shredded cheese. Keeping the heat low, cover with lid and let cheese melt.
That's it! So simple and it is soooo good! 
 We like to serve ours with some Taco sauce.

Keep it Simple,
