    • 1 Ground sirloin


    • 1 Flat-leaf parsley, fresh
    • 1 Garlic cloves
    • 1 Onion
    • 1 (14.5-ounce) can Tomatoes

    Pasta & Grains

    • 1 Penne

    Baking & Spices

    • 1 All-purpose flour
    • 1 Kosher salt

    Oils & Vinegars

    • 1 Cooking spray
    • 1 Olive oil


    • 4 oz 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, less-fat
    • 1 (3-ounce) package Cream cheese, fat-free
    • 1 Milk, fat-free
    • 3 oz Mozzarella cheese, part-skim

    This recipe came out pretty good with a few adjustments: 1. Do not use 2 cups of milk. It comes out too soupy (per comments). I'd suggest start with 1 cup or so and add a little more as you need. 2. I just used one 8 oz package of low fat cream cheese. 3. I added some Greek seasoning for flavor and used "Italian" diced tomatoes. With these modifications, the pasta came out tasty and creamy.
