So my kids are fans of anything with Cheese and Noodles. I found that if I stick veggies in their food... as long as there is Cheese and Noodles... they will eat it.  You can use your food processor to chop them up even smaller... they will probably not even notice they are in their if they are small enough.

1 Whole Onion, Chopped
3 Cloves of Garlic, Chopped
1 Pound Ground Turkey, Chicken or Beef
4 Cups of Chopped Veggies, I used Spinach, Tatsoi, Zucchini and Broccoli but you can use any combination you have
1 Jar of your favorite Pasta Sauce
1/2 Bar of Low Fat Cream Cheese, you can also use 1 cup of plain Yogurt (Greek works best)
1 Tablespoon of Paprika
Sharp Cheddar
1 Box of Pasta, cooked and drained. I used Brown Rice Pasta

Brown your onion in approx 4-5 tablespoons of Olive or Canola Oil ....

Add the meat and the garlic...

Cook and brown for about 5-7 minutes

Chop up all your veggies... use the processor to make them easy to hide.

Add to the meat and onion mixture

Add the pasta sauce and the Paprika

Simmer for about 5 minutes covered.

Add the cream cheese of yogurt... melt it in.

Turn the heat off and add the pasta...

Mix well ...

Add your cheese... I used 1 cup of extra sharp cheddar

All done....  Serve nice and hot.
