Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Baked Whole Grain Penne Rigate

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Chilly out there this morning, 39 degrees. But it was another beautiful Fall Day out there, 66 degrees and sunny! We had to have Dad at the Eye Care Center. He has Cataracts and they were going to do testing to see if he would be strong enough to take the surgery. We’ll find out when they call with the results. Its been a very stressful day so I’m going to reheat the leftover Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Baked Whole Grain Penne Rigate for Dinner tonight. I left the original post from last night below. Till tomorrow everyone!

 

I prepared a Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Baked Whole Grain Penne Rigate. I’m using 2 of my favorites, Jennie – O Turkey and Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta. I’ll be using Jennie – O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage along with Ronzoni Healthy Harvest 100% Whole Grain Penne Rigate. I’ll also be needing; 1 jar La Rosa Sauce, 16 ounces fresh Mozzarella (sliced), ¼ cup Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and sliced Mushrooms.

 

 

 

I cooked the Pasta according to package directions. Boiling Water for 10 minutes. Drain; set aside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the Pasta was cooking I got out the Jennie – O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and removed the casing on the Sausage. Then in a large skillet I sauteed the Sausage and the sliced Mushrooms. Cooked it until the Sausage is no longer pink. Drain and return to skillet.

 

 

 

 

 

Added the cooked Pasta, La Rosa Sauce, and Parmesan Cheese to skillet and stir to combine. Next I poured half of the Pasta mixture into a 13×9-inch baking dish coated with Pam Cooking Spray. Layer half of the Mozzarella slices on top. Then bake at 375 degrees F, uncovered, for about 40 minutes or until heated through and Mozzarella is melted. Let cool and chow down!

 

 

 

 

Well the wait for my Comfort Food Pasta Bake was well worth it! The Turkey, Mushrooms, Sauce, and Pasta was just so good. Then the fresh slices of Mozzarella sealed the deal! I love that fresh Mozzarella! Also had the baked French Bread. No Dessert tonight.
