Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage

 

 

For Breakfast  Morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 86 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry and then I went to Meijer to buy some new Bed Sheets, picked up a couple more items while there. Back home I cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. For Dinner tonight it’s an Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage.

 

 

I had not had this in quite a while. I Wanted something light today and a Pasta Salad sounded perfect! For my Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bite size pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked for about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! These go great with anything.

 

Then to go with the Turkey Sausage I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always tastes even better after chilling for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

 

 

To serve, I made a bed of the Pasta in a bowl and topped it with the sliced Turkey Sausage, and chowed down! The Pasta Salad and Turkey Sausage are a perfect combination. And the Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor! I also had a slice of the some leftover Garlic Bread Loaf. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
