    lazyme's Note:

    I found this yummy sounding recipe online. It's from the cookbook "Diabetes Meal Planning on $7 a Day Or Less!" Time does not include time to cook the macaroni or any small shaped pasta.

      This is a grand week night dinner for the working cook. It's very quick and tasty. I used Yves veggie Ground Round, crushed tomatoes (Canada doesn't have Rotel) and frozen corn. I topped my serving with a slice of fat free cheddar cheese. I used 2 tsps of chili powder. I enjoyed this and will enjoy the leftovers soon. Thanks Vic. Made for Photo Tag
