Today’s Menu: Whole Grain Penne Rigate and Smoked Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Mozza Parm Bread
I had made a small bowl of Italian Pasta Salad for lunch earlier today and the Pasta tasted so good I made another Pasta dish for dinner, Whole Grain Penne Rigate and Smoked Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Mozza Parm Bread.
To prepare it I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate, Eckrich Turkey Smoked Sausage, Bella Vita Low Carb Pasta Sauce (Meat Flavored), fresh Grated Mozzarella Cheese, Sea Salt, and McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning. Turn the heat to low, and pour 1/2 cup water into the skillet with the Eckrich sausage. To prepare the Sausage just add 2/3 cup of water to a skillet and heat to a boil. Add the Sausage and cover the skillet with a lid and reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes until it’s heated through out. While that was cooking I took my Sauce and put that into a medium sauce pan, put the lid on, and heated on low. After the Sausage was done I sliced it into bite size pieces and added to the Pasta Sauce. I then boiled my Pasta by the box instructions. Boiled for 10 minutes and drained the water and added my Sausage and Pasta Sauce to the Pasta. Seasoned everything with Sea Salt and McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, mixed well and served topping it with freshly shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Makes a delicious and filling dinner! I love that Smoked Turkey Sausage! To prepare the Mozza Parm Bread just take 2 slices of bread, I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, butter both slices, add a light coating of Kraft Shredded Parmesan Cheese and sprinkle with freshly shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Bake at 400 degrees until Cheese has melted and served. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

I had a box of Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta in the pantry so I decided to make an Italian Pasta Salad for lunch. I used about 1/4 of the box of the Pasta, enough for a couple of servings. Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Shredded Parmesan, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, and McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning. Boil the Pasta according to the box and add all the ingredients and refrigerate. Too Good!

I had a Jennie – O Baked Turkey Tenderloin that I had marinated for three hours in JB’s Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ and added a couple of Adobe Peppers along with a 1/2 teaspoon of Adobe Sauce. After seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Smoked Cumin I then baked it for 30 minutes covered and thirty minutes uncovered at 350 degrees. The Turkey turned out moist and delicious. The JB’s Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ. Sauce makes a perfect marinade for not only Turkey but also Chicken. The Adobe Peppers and Sauce raised the heat level a bit but not over powering.
For sides I had Margaret Holmes Sweet Potato Casserole. First time I tried it and it’s another Margaret Holmes Product that I’ll keep in stock! It comes in a can so just empty it into a Sauce Pan and heat until warmed. I also had made a Pasta Salad earlier using Ronzoni Garden Delight Rotini. This is the colored Rotini, Enriched Tomato, Carrots, and Spinach Pasta Blend. After cooking the Pasta I added McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning and Sea Salt for the seasoning. I then added Kraft Free Italian Dressing, 8 pieces of Hormel Turkey Pepperoni (Chopped), 5 Canned Anchovies (Chopped), 6 minced capers, and Kraft Shredded Parm Cheese. Keep in the fridge until ready to use. Also I had Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. With the heat of the Chicken and the sweetness of the Sweet Potatoes it made a perfect combination! For dessert later a Yoplait Chocolate and Banana Smoothie!
