Turkey Taco Mac n' Cheese

12 oz. uncooked macaroni + 1 C. of the water that the macaroni's were cooked in

1 1/2 lb. ground turkey

1 Can (14oz) petite diced tomatoes

4 Tbsp. 30% less sodium taco seasoning

4 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese

1/2 C. Light Sour Cream

1/2 C. Shredded Cheese
DIRECTIONS: In a skillet, brown the turkey. After turkey is browned, add taco seasoning and can of tomatoes. Stir and allow to simmer. Cook pasta according to package directions. Before draining, reserve 1 C. of the water. Return drained pasta to the pot and add the reserved water, turkey taco meat mixture and all remaining ingred. Stir, stir, stir until all cheeses are melted. Dish into bowls. I topped mine with 1 Tbsp. of salsa, a little bit of sour cream and some crushed chips. YUMMY!!
