Today’s Menu: Hamburger Helper Spaghetti w/ Baked French Bread

Hamburger Helper Spaghetti 006

 
Happy Halloween Everyone! Well they cancelled Trick or Treat Night around most of the area for tonight. Cancelled due to a heavy thunderstorm with high winds that’s supposed to move through a large chunk of this part of the Country. Most have rescheduled Trick or Treat for tomorrow night. Tonight I prepared Hamburger Helper Spaghetti w/ Baked French Bread.

 

 
I had tried the Hamburger Helper Lasagna a while back, which was very good, so I thought I would give the Hamburger Helper Spaghetti a try. As usual I replaced the Ground Beef with Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. What a huge difference in calories and grams of fat for 1 lb. of Ground Turkey and Ground Beef! All the nutrition sites vary somewhat but according to http://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/ web site 1 Lb of Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat) contains 621 Calories and 22.68g Total Fat! While Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast contains Calories 120 Dietary Fiber 0 g Calories From Fat 15 Sugars 0 g Total Fat 1.5 g – See more at: http://www.jennieo.com/products/3-Extra-Lean-Ground-Turkey-Breast#sthash.wCRJyEmM.dpuf. A huge difference!!

To prepare it, the short version, start by browning the Ground Turkey and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Parsley Flakes. Stir in hot water, uncooked spaghetti and sauce mix. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. 3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spaghetti is tender. Remove from heat and uncover. (Sauce will thicken as it stands.) It was very easy to prepare and I really enjoyed it! I liked this better than the Hamburger Lasagna. The Spaghetti was tender and the Sauce was excellent. I added just a bit of Kraft Grated Parmesan and topped with a bit of Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.
