Sloppy Joe Skillet

Please follow and like us:

Combining noodles, cheese, and sloppy Joes = a delicious meal!

Not only does it taste good, but it’s also filling and easy to make.

Instead of using Manwich sauce, I did a quick homemade sloppy Joe sauce.

How I kept this recipe light:

For the sloppy Joe mixture I used Laura’s lean ground beef. It’s only 12 points for one pound.

The onion, green pepper, garlic, and tomato sauce were all 0 points.

Like most homemade sloppy Joe recipes I used brown sugar, but limited it to 1 tablespoon.

Instead of using regular cheddar cheese, I used reduced-fat cheddar cheese.

Just a few easy tweaks and this recipe comes out to 8 points per serving.

How to make this Sloppy Joe Skillet:

Use a food scale to measure 6 ounces of noodles. I used cavatappi noodles since I had them, but any noodle will work.

Cook and drain the noodles according to the directions on the box.

While the noodles are cooking, add the ground beef to a skillet.

Once the ground beef is somewhat browned, add in the onion, green pepper, and garlic.

Drain any extra grease, then stir in the tomato sauce, brown sugar, Worcester sauce, salt, and black pepper.

Let the mixture cook for 10 minutes, then stir in the noodles.

Turn the heat off, top with the cheese, and put the lid on. Let it sit for 5 minutes so the cheese melts.

This is the perfect meal to serve with a 0 point vegetable or you could do a side salad.

Can you substitute ground turkey or ground chicken or will it be too dry?

I love your site and all of your recipes. One thing I wish is that you would also put serving size on your recipes. For example, this recipe (Sloppy Joe Skillet) looks amazing but you do not tell us what the serving size is.

@Naya Ubushin, I understand that. I want to know how big each serving is (1 cup, 4 oz., etc.)
