Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked French Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties, some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I headed up the road to the local Kroger, I needed Bread and a few items. They say we are in a stretch of hot and humid days. Don’t mind the heat but I can’t stand the humidity. Did some cleaning outside before it got too bad and then I was in the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight its Leftover Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna.

 

 

I had 2 portions of the Lasagna in the freezer that I had sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then when it was time for Dinner I put it in a microwavable bowl and heated it up. The Lasagna holds up very good being froze and reheated. When heated, I added some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese to top it off and served! It came out delicious, so glad that I can freeze the leftovers for future Dinner! Below I’ve left a past post that has the ingredients and cooking instructions below. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

As usual I’m using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, which I had in the freezer so I sat it in the fridge to thaw overnight. I use the recipe that’s on back of the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna Box as a guide. Making changes to some of the ingredients to reduce calories and carbs. I used the following; 1lb Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 3 cups (26 oz jar) Ragu Pasta Sauce, Sliced Mushrooms (optional), 1 cup Water, 1 3/4 cups (15 oz container) Kroger Part Skim Milk Ricotta Cheese, 2 cups (8 oz) or more Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (divided), 1/2 cup grated Kraft Parmesan Cheese, 1/2 cup chopped fresh Parsley, 1/2 tsp Sea Salt, 1/4 tsp ground Black Pepper, and 6 pieces Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna, uncooked. Cutting calories and carbs by using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast and the Kroger Part Skim Milk Ricotta Cheese, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Cheese.

 

 

Ready for the oven…..

Then to prepare it, Heat oven to 350°F. In a skillet, over medium-high heat, brown Turkey; season to taste and drain of excess fat. Add the Pasta Sauce, Mushrooms, and Water; simmer about 10 minutes. Pour about 1 cup Sauce on bottom of a 13×9 foil pan. Arrange 3 UNCOOKED pasta pieces lengthwise over sauce; cover with 1 cup sauce. Spread one-half Ricotta Cheese and Mozzarella Cheese over Sauce. Repeat layers of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST LASAGNA, Sauce and Ricotta Cheese, Mozzarella. Top with layer of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST LASAGNA and remaining Sauce; sprinkle with Mozzarella Cheese. Cover with foil. Bake 45 minutes. Remove foil; bake additional 10 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

 

 

…and done!

The Lasagna comes out perfect, love this recipe! Everything tasted so fresh and as usual the Jennie -O Turkey was the star bringing everything together to make one delicious dish! Plenty of leftovers for another meal or to freeze for later use. I’ve frozen this several times and it always comes out great after reheating. I left the original recipe at the bottom of the post. With just a few changes I saved on calories, carbs, and fat grams. The original recipe is at the end of the post. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. I really don’t need Bread to go with Lasagna but Mom and Dad wanted some.
