Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Bella Vita Low Carb Pasta Sauce
It was spaghetti night tonight! I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti along with Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. Topped everything with Shredded Parmesan Cheese and Bella Vita Low Carb Pasta Sauce (Meat Flavored). Along with the great taste the Sauce is only 70 Calories and a mere 6 Carbs! I also had healthy Life Whole Grain Bread that I buttered and then sprinkled with Shredded Parm Cheese. Then I baked it at 350 degrees for 7 minutes. Makes a good side for any Pasta dish. For dessert/snack later some Chip‘ins Popcorn Chips along with Athenos Roasted Red Pepper Huummus.

Love these Burgers! I need to have them more often. Had a Pineapple Teriyaki Turkey Burger. I used Honeysuckle White 93% Lean Ground Turkey.

Had sides of sautéed Mushrooms. The recipe calls for grilling the Burgers, I used a Grill Pan and cooked them indoors (Only 36 degrees out!). Recipe follows.
