Yummy! Definitely not a meal for Weight Watchers plan. Easy, one pan tasty dish that feeds hungry people (especially bottomless pit teenage boys). The recipe calls for 1 lb of ground beef, but I use 1 lb ground turkey and it tastes fabulous, with a little less fat!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef or turkey with chopped onion until meat is no longer pink.
  2. Reduce heat & add quart of tomato juice, oregano & parsley. Mix well.
  3. Add Velveeta Shells & Cheese packet, stir until well blended.
  4. Simmer 10-15 minutes until liquid is absorbed and shells cooked, stirring occasionally. If it's too dry, add a little water.
  5. For an extra kick, sprinkle a little cayenne pepper into the mixture.
  6. Enjoy!
