Had a very hearty comfort food dinner. A definate added recipe, fantastic flavor! I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta, ahealthy pasta choice at 180 calories and 41 carbs. For the sauce I used Bella Vita Low Carb Pasta Sauce and that being only 70 calories and 6 carbs! I love this sauce it has great flavor and good on any pasta. So you get the full flavor of pasta sauce but not the calories or carbs. Then for the Turkey Sausage I tried a new one, Johnsonville Turkey Sausage. The sausage is 110 calories and 0 carbs.
I had precooked and sliced the Turkey Sausage earlier. I boiled the pasta and while it was boiling I heated the pasta sauce and added the sliced Turkey Sausage. After boiling and draining the pasta I added the pasta back to pot and added the sauce and sausage to it and mixed until the pasta was well coated. Seasoned the Pasta with McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning and some fresh chopped Italian Parsley. Served the pasta with Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. I’ve heard that Pillsbury is working on a Whole Wheat French Bread, hope it’s true! Plenty of leftovers so I know what dinner will be tomorrow. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with sliced Mango.
