Upside Down Pizza

1 lb ground turkey breast (jennie O watch the fat content)
1 jar fat free spaghetti sauce (Ragu
Light Fat Free Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce)
1 bag fat free shredded pizza cheese
1 pepper diced
1 onion diced
2 tubes canned biscuits (have never found low or fat free on
these, i just compare and buy the best)
1 tbs cooking oil (veg, canola, pam cooking spray whatever you use)

in skillet add oil, onion, pepper and ground turkey, cook until all done (peppers and onions done but not soggy)
add mix to casserole pan add spaghetti sauce sprinkle with cheese, cut up biscuits and place on top trying to cover evenly…cook in oven on 350 until biscuits are golden brown
years ago my girlfriend gave me this recipe and said she got it out of a magazine you can make it as fat free or full of fat as you want by what you add to it its up to you and what your looking for and what your taste is
the entire family loves this, have never found anyone who doesn’t and most of them don’t even realize they are eating healthy until after when i tell them

We make this and eat it as a meal.

Mexican Dip

2 blocks of Light or Fat Free Cream Cheese
2 cans of Hormel Chili (no beans)
1 jar of salsa
1 pkg. of light or fat free shredded cheese (I use Mexican blend or cheddar)

In a 9 x 11 pan, layer the ingredients as listed. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

You can use the baked tortilla chips to cut down on the fat or you can cut corn tortillas into triangles and put them on a cookie sheet. Salt to taste and broil them until crispy.

Your recipe looks great! Was thinking perhaps you could substitute reduced fat crescent rolls on top. If you open the tube and fold one side over the other it'd be thicker like a biscuit, then you could cut into pieces or sections with a pizza cutter before baking for the same effect. And then, reduce some fat of that fat. Just a thought! :D
