Today’s Menu: Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Sliced Carrots, Portabella Marsala Pasta, and Multi Grain Demi- Baguette.

 

 
Early morning shopping at Meijer. They had pork Roasts on special so I’m going with Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin. I preheated the oven to 475 degrees F. I placed the pork loin on a rack in a roasting pan. I then combined Sea Salt, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Minced Garlic, Thyme, Rosemary, and Basil in a small bowl. Then with my fingers, massaged the mixture onto the pork loin, covering all of the meat and fat. I roasted the pork for 30 minutes, make sure you have your stove overhead fan running as it start to smoke somewhat after about 20 minutes. I then reduced the heat to 425 degrees F and roasted it for an additional 30 minutes, normally you continue roasting up to an hour but this was smaller roast. Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests. Then be ready to slice one delicious and juicy Pork Tenderloin! The Herb Mix makes a perfect crust for the roast.

For sides I prepared Sliced Carrots and Portabella Marsala Pasta, Meijer Bakery Multi Grain Demi- Baguette. I just boiled the Carrot Chips and it was the first time I tried The Healthy Choice 100% Natural Portabella Marsala Pasta. Easy to fix; microwave for 5 1/2 minutes and you have a great side dish. It’s a Nine-grain mafalda pasta topped with slices of rich crimini mushrooms tossed with a savory marsala wine sauce and topped with rich fontina cheese, and totaling 250 calories. i had a 1/2 serving of this which was plenty. I’ll be using this again it was delicious. I left product info and web link at the end of the post. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello, 10 calories!
