Today’s Menu: Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage

Rolled out to grab the morning papers and it was a bit nippy out, about 26 degrees with a breeze. The day turned out sunny and in the 40’s. Started the morning off with Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, Eckrich Turkey Breakfast SausageSkillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w Hardwood Smoked 003 Links, 1 slice Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Bad day with Dad today, did Mom’s laundry for her she had her hands full today. Dad’s health is getting worse every day. For lunch I made everybody Pot Roast Sandwiches for lunch, used the delicious leftovers from last night’s dinner. That’s one fine recipe to keep! Did some light cleaning around the house and cleaned both our cutting boards. Used a combo of Course Sea Salt and a Lemon, works great as a cleaner on cutting boards. For dinner tonight I prepared Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked French Bread.


Wanted a good Comfort Food Dinner tonight and what better combination than a Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage Dinner. I love Mac and Cheese but don’t have it a lot due to the carbs and calories, I have Diabetes 2. But every now and then I give in to the craving and fix a bowl. I do always try to use Whole Grain or Whole Wheat Pastas.

For the Pasta I used Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese. I don’t use a lot of mac and Cheese due to the calories and carbs but the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese isn’t too bad, plus every now and then doesn’t hurt. Just follow the easy instructions on the box and you are set. It’s just a flat out Pasta and Cheese Comfort Food Heaven! Excellent tasting Rotini Pasta and with the Cheese, perfect. Put the lid on Sauce Pan and removed it from the heat.




Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 003
Then for the Turkey Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I took one of the Sausages and cut it in to bite size pieces. I took a medium size skillet and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray. Added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated up I added the Turkey Sausage pieces. I cooked them about 12 minutes, stirring them frequently until browned and heated through. When the Sausage was ready I then added it to my pan of Pasta, gently stirring till mixed.

Served it in a bowl and added a few shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce. The pasta and sausage are a perfect pairing, and the Hot Sauce just kicks it up a bit! Comfort Food Deluxe tonight, I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
