    2      c             elbow macaroni -- cooked and drained
      1/2  tsp           olive oil
    1      lb            ground turkey breast -- cooked
      1/2  c             onions -- chopped
      1/2  c             bell peppers -- chopped
    1      pkg           taco seasoning mix
   15      ozs           dark red kidney beans -- undrained
   16      ozs           no-salt-added tomato sauce
      1/4  c             skim milk -- at room temperature
    2      c             fat-free cheddar cheese -- grated
      1/2  c             fat-free cheddar cheese -- grated
 
 Preheat oven to 375. Prepare a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray;
 set aside. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add turkey, onions, and
 bell peppers. Cook until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are
 tender. Stir in taco seasoning mix, dark red kidney beans, and tomato
 sauce. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes; set aside. Return
 hot macaroni to saucepan. Stir in milk and 2 cups cheddar cheese. Layer
 half the macaroni and half turkey mixture in prepared pan. Repeat layers.
 Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until heated through. Top with remaining
 cheddar cheese. Bake, uncovered again, for 3 minutes or until cheese has
 melted.
