When cooking ground turkey - you can add a little water to the pan instead of oil. I learned this from a low-cal cooking show that used zero fat ever - it really works!
I used one package of cauliflower rice and cooked according to package directions
If you'd like even lower points - you can leave the cheese off all together - but it's a nice to have
