Recipe by Chris Reynolds

From Healthy Cooking. I'm always looking for a new way to serve ground beef, particularly in these days of higher prices! I sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese on the top when serving.

Yum! I kicked up the flavor here with a few garlic cloves and some chili powder. In place of the macaroni, I used Shirataki tofu noodles in the fettuccini shape that I cut up into smaller pieces. It worked great and kept the dish REALLY low carb/calorie, but didn't sacrifice taste or texture! I also added black olives and diced zucchini. Lime juice makes a nice addition to the bowl too. Thanks for posting Chris!
