Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Baked Harvest Grain Bread.


Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 013
Getting sort of chilly around here, it was about 33 degrees with a wind chill of 24 degrees. Cloudy all day but we’ve been lucky none of the snow that some places have been getting. Took Mom and Dad to their Family Doctor, Dad had to have a checkup and they wrote a prescription for a lift chair. He’s been having problems getting out of a chair so this lift chair should help. For dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Baked Harvest Grain Bread.



Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 001
Made some Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese to warm the day up a little. I used 2 Cans of Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, Barilla Whole Grain Elbow Pasta (4 servings), Dried Cilantro, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and fresh grated Dutch Gouda Cheese. For some reason, not sure why, it’s getting harder to find Whole Grain Pasta Products around this area. You can find Spaghetti, most of the time, but all other varieties are hard to find anymore.

I prepared the Elbow Pasta in a large sauce pan, according to the package directions. When the Pasta was done I drained the water and put the Pasta in a small Dutch Oven. I then added the Turkey Chili to the Pasta and mixed well. Added a 1/2 cup of the Sargento Cheese and Cilantro, mixed and put the lid on the Dutch Oven. Heated it on medium low until I was ready to serve it. Another tasty comfort food dish! The Pasta came out just right and as always the Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans was delicious. Served it in a bowl and topped it with a sprinkle of The Sargento Cheese and the fresh grated Dutch Gouda. Love using Dutch Gouda, it melts good and gives dishy a creamy taste. I also baked a loaf of Kroger Bakery Harvest Grain Bread, which goes great with Chili, Soups, and Stews. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Barilla Whole Grain ElbowsBarilla Whole Grain Elbow Pasta

Try Barilla’s Whole Grain Elbow pasta. Made with 51% whole wheat, Barilla Whole Grain had 3 times the fiber of regular pasta while still tasting great!
Elbows is named for its twisted tubular shape that can vary in size, and be either smooth or ridged. Pasta elbows originated from Northern and Central Italy, where they are traditionally used in soups. The Barilla version is ridged with an extra twist, giving it a more sophisticated shape that also helps to hold the sauce. With Barilla twisted Elbows, you can take this fun shape beyond the expected in any number of traditional Italian meals, in soups, baked pasta dishes, or tossed with vegetable or cheese sauces.

1. Bring 4-6 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add salt to taste, if desired.
2. Add contents of package to boiling water. Stir gently.
3. Return to a boil. For authentic “al dente” pasta, boil uncovered, stirring occasionally for 7 minutes. For more tender pasta, boil an additional minute.
4. Remove from heat. Drain well and serve as desired.

Whole grain pasta is best paired with tomato or cream sauces. Pesto sauces also go well with whole grain pasta. Meat and game sauces pair well too. Green vegetables in general taste very good with whole grain pasta. Pine nuts, walnuts, chestnuts, pistachios, and dried fruit such as raisins and apples pair very well with this whole grain pasta. Cheese sauces made with Parmigiano, Grana, Asiago, Pecorino, Ricotta, Provolone, or Fontina cheese work well with whole grain pasta in terms of flavor profiles.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
