Cook pasta according to package and drain.
Heat olive oil over medium heat and saute ground turkey, onion, garlic, in a large skillet until meat is cooked.
Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl mix cooked pasta, meat mixture, sauce, 1 cup of cheese, 16 pepperoni and Italian seasoning.

Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes until heated through.

Using canned tomato sauce, lean ground turkey (or chicken) and no fat cheese help make this a delicious low point casserole. If you use 99% fat-free turkey you can lower the points. The serving size is 1/2 cup. Serve with a low point side or green salad for a filling low point dinner.
