Today’s Menu: Baked Rigatoni with Turkey w/ Baked Multi Grain Loaf Bread

 

 

For my Breakfast this morning I prepared a 2 Egg Scrambled Eggs, that I topped with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. Then I reheated part of the Monster Pork Chop that was leftover from last night. I also toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. And as every morning a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it’s partly cloudy with a high around 85 degrees and a bit more humid. After Breakfast I went to the Post Office for Mom, picked up a prescription at Kroger, and stopped by the bank ATM machine. Back home not a lot going on today. After a light Lunch I headed out to Meijer Lawn and Garden. looking for some solar lights for the yard. For Dinner tonight a new recipe, Baked Rigatoni with Turkey w/ Baked Multi Grain Loaf Bread.

 

This 1 of 2 Pillsbury based recipes that I’m trying this week. The Baked Rigatoni with Turkey that I’m preparing was originally made with Ground Beef but as I do with a lot of recipes I put my little spin on them. To make the dish I’ll need; 2 1/2 cups uncooked Rigatoni Pasta (about 7 oz) – I used Racconto Rigatoni, 1 lb Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 1 jar (23.9 oz) Ragu Mushroom Sauce, 1 1/2 cups Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (6 oz), 1/4 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and Dried Basil Leaves.

 

 

Ready for the oven….

Then to prepare it; I started by preheating the oven to 350°F. Next spray 11×7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with Pam Cooking Spray. Cook and drain the Pasta as directed on package, using the minimum cooking time. Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook the Jenni – O Turkey over medium-high heat about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.

 

 

 

 

….and done!

In the baking dish, stir together cooked Pasta, Turkey, Sauce and 1 cup of the Mozzarella Cheese. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese and the Parmesan Cheese. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Garnish with the Basil and serve! I have another one of those “keeper recipes”, it turned out great! Rigatoni is incredible all by itself, but add in the Turkey, Sauce, and Cheese and you have a winning dish. I always substitute Beef with Jennie – O Turkey or Wild Idea Buffalo. Ground Buffalo would go great with also. I’ve left the original Pillsbury recipe and web link at the end of the post.

 

 

To go with Pasta I baked a loaf of the La Brea Bakery Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.
