Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Meatballs

 
To jump start my day I made one our favorites, Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs 004Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. Beautiful morning out, and NO RAIN! Sunny with a high near 70 degrees. I stayed home all day and caught up on some house cleaning and yard work. It was dusting and ran the vacuum inside and outside got the cart out pulled some weeds out of Mom’s flower beds and got the leaf blower out and cleaned around the house. I don’t know how we always end up with all the leaves, limbs, and blowing trash. Everything done took a ride on the cart around the neighborhood and enjoyed the sunshine! For dinner tonight its Spaghetti and Meatballs with a fresh baked Italian Bread Loaf.

 

Spaghetti and Meatballs 002
It’s been a while since I’ve made Spaghetti and Meatballs and it really sounded good! To make it I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti, my favorite Pasta. Cooks up great and an excellent tasting Pasta. It’s 180 calories and 35 net carbs per serving. Then for my Meatballs I used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are good size, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and their 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. For my Pasta Sauce I used Ragu Mushroom Sauce and topped with some Kroger Private Selection Shaved Parmesan Cheese.

 

Spaghetti and Meatballs 004
To prepare the dish; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. In a sauce pan I add my Meatballs and Ragu Sauce, heated on medium low until heated through. In a large bowl I added the finished Spaghetti, the Sauce and Meatballs and mixed and served. Topped the Spaghetti with the Shaved Parmesan Cheese. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Spaghettironzoni

Here’s something to absorb: One serving of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta has over 20% of your daily recommended fiber intake – but did you know that fiber is good for you in more ways than just digestion?

People with diets high in fiber have a lower risk for weight gain, obesity, development of insulin resistance and ronzonidiabetes. Fiber also prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulitis, but it also helps reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases like colon and breast cancer. Fiber may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and total cholesterol, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. It can also help lower blood sugar to better manage diabetes.

Dietary fiber is the edible part of plants, primarily carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the small intestine. Fiber may be digested by fermentation in the large intestine. By eating high fiber foods you feel fuller, eat less, with fewer absorbed calories.

Fiber comes in two basic forms – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, seeds, brown rice, oats and barley. It prevents or reduces the absorption of certain substances into the bloodstream. Insoluble fiber is found mainly in whole grains and on the outside of seeds, fruits, legumes, and other foods. It is like a sponge that swells within the intestine to promote more efficient elimination and alleviate some digestive disorders.

Fiber is found only in plant foods and passes through the digestive tract without being completely broken down. Being indigestible, fiber provides no nutrients to the body, which is why for many years it was removed from processed foods like white bread. But, nutritionists have since discovered that fiber performs valuable functions precisely because it is not digested, and it is essential to good health.
