Today’s Menu: Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread

 

 

 

Well they finally got a weather forecast right! They predicted heavy rain, 2-4 inches possible. And we’re getting that, but it’s about 54 degrees out and it beats 20 degrees and heavy snow. Good day for cleaning and laundry. Then for dinner tonight I made some Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread.

 

Homemade Lasagna 004

 
I used the recipe that was on back of the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna Box, Healthy Harvest Easy Lasagna. I made using the following; 1lb Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 3 cups (26 oz jar) Ragu Light Tomato and Basil Spaghetti Sauce, 1 small container of Baby Bella Mushrooms (sliced), 1 1/2 cups Water, 1 3/4 cups (15 oz container) Miceli’s Lite Ricotta Cheese, 2 cups (8 oz) Sargento Shredded Mozzarella/Provolone Cheese, divided, 1/2 cup grated Kraft Parmesan Cheese, 2 Eggs, 1/4 cup chopped fresh Parsley, 1/2 tsp Sea Salt, 1/4 tsp ground Black Pepper, and 9 pieces Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna, uncooked. Cutting calories and carbs by using Ground Turkey Breast and the Miceli’s Lite Ricotta Cheese.

 

 

 
Then to prepare it I just went by the instructions on the box which are: Heat oven to 350°F. In 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat, brown meat; drain. Add spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, and water; simmer about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, one-half mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, eggs, parsley, salt and pepper. 5. Pour about 1 cup sauce on bottom of 13×9-inch baking dish. Arrange 3 UNCOOKED pasta pieces lengthwise over sauce; cover with 1 cup sauce. Spread one-half cheese filling over sauce. Repeat layers of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST LASAGNA, sauce and cheese filling. 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. The Lasagna came out perfect! The Healthy Harvest Noodles are 5 Star! A keeper recipe. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

Whole Grain Lasagna are ripple-edged strips about 2-1/4-inches wide and 10-inches long. Almost exclusively used to make oven-baked entrées. Pasta is undercooked, then layered with tomato or cream sauces, cheese, meat (or seafood) or vegetables, then oven baked until pasta is done. Whole Grain Lasagna can also be cooked longer to make roll-ups; individual pieces are spread with cheese filling, rolled up, covered with sauce and oven baked.

Today’s Menu: Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread

 

lasagna
Been a sunny but very cool day today, high only in the 40’s. It’s that time of year though and it’s my favorite time of the year. Everyone had been wanting Lasagna so Lasagna it was! I usually have a box or two of the Progreso Kitchen Favorites Classic Lasagna, which is our favorite, but I was out so I went to the store and both Kroger and Walmart not only was out of it but no longer carried it! Not good, I love this Lasagna. I even checked on-line and it looks as though Progresso has dropped it. So it was Lasagna from scratch. For dinner, Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread.

 

 
I had only made Lasagna like this one other time and it’s been a while. I used the recipe that was on back of the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna Box, Healthy Harvest Easy Lasagna. I made using the following; 1lb Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 3 cups (26 oz jar) Ragu Light Tomato and Basil Spaghetti Sauce, 1 small container of Baby Bella Mushrooms (sliced), 1 1/2 cups Water, 1 3/4 cups (15 oz container) Miceli’s Lite Ricotta Cheese, 2 cups (8 oz) Sargento Shredded Mozzarella/Provolone Cheese, divided, 1/2 cup grated Kraft Parmesan Cheese, 2 Eggs, 1/4 cup chopped fresh Parsley, 1/2 tsp Sea Salt, 1/4 tsp ground Black Pepper, and 9 pieces Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna, uncooked. Cutting calories and carbs by using Ground Turkey Breast and the Miceli’s Lite Ricotta Cheese.

* I failed to recharge my camera, so the pictures are of a previous Lasagna meal. *

 

 
Then to prepare it I just went by the instructions on the box which are: Heat oven to 350°F. In 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat, brown meat; drain. Add spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, and water; simmer about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, one-half mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, eggs, parsley, salt and pepper. 5. Pour about 1 cup sauce on bottom of 13×9-inch baking dish. Arrange 3 UNCOOKED pasta pieces lengthwise over sauce; cover with 1 cup sauce. Spread one-half cheese filling over sauce. Repeat layers of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST LASAGNA, sauce and cheese filling. 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. The Lasagna came out perfect! The Healthy Harvest Noodles are 5 Star! A keeper recipe. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

 

Turkey and Black Bean Tacos 005
Beautiful Autumn Day out today! Went to Meijer this morning to pick up some Jennie – O Turkey Products; Ground Breakfast Sausage,Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, Italian Sweet Sausages, and Breakfast Links. While there I watched the most extreme Couponer I have ever seen, she was amazing! She had a good size binder, notebook type, and on front of the binder a printout of each store aisle and the major products in that aisle. Then pockets in the binder that contained coupons for items in that aisle. I talked to her for a bit and said the biggest savings she had been just over $200! She said it took a lot of time but had a nice pay off! Quite impressive. On to Dinner. Tonight one of my favorites, Turkey and Black Bean Tacos.

 

 
I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, I had this leftover from the other night when I made Stuffed Peppers. I fried it in Canola Oil and seasoned it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes, and 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning. As I added the Taco Seasoning Mix I also added 1 can of Bush’s Low Sodium Black Beans, I drained and rinsed them before I added them. Black Beans with Ground Turkey is a perfect pairing for Tacos. Mixed well until everything was coated and then simmered another 5 minutes until heated through.

 

 
For my other toppings I used 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, 1 small diced Tomato, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, Dole Shredded Lettuce, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and all in a Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells. Love these Tacos! For dessert later a Jello Sugarless Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Pulled Buffalo Chipotle BBQ Sandwich w/ Mini Taco Tostadas AppetizersPulled Bison Mini Turkey Tostadas 007

 

 

 

 

Wow, we finally saw the sun today! They say not for long though as more heavy rain predicted. Went to Meijer this morning and picked up quite a few items. Finding Meijer prices lower and lower, that’s a good thing. They also have the best selections of Jennie – O products, which I love using! In fact I’ll be using some of the Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey for an appetizer for tonight. For dinner I prepared a Pulled Buffalo Chipotle BBQ Sandwich w/ Mini Taco Tostadas Appetizers.

 

 

I used Wild Idea Buffalo Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast. It comes in a 1 lb. package and it’s already cooked. It’s rubbed with a blend of Mexican seasonings and then slowly braised to fall apart tender. All I did was open and heat! I topped it with JB’S Fat Boy Chipotle BBQ Sauce and served on a Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Sandwich Bun. I love Buffalo and Wild Idea Buffalo has the most delicious Buffalo Meat there is!

 

For a side or appetizer I prepared Mini Taco Dip Tostadas with a Greek Yogurt/Sour Cream Sauce. Really happy how this came out, Pulled Bison Mini Turkey Tostadas 003delicious! A really good and easily prepared appetizer. Got the idea from the Cooking Channel and I used some reduced fat items to make it a bit more healthy and keeping the taste. I first made Greek Yogurt/Sour Cream Sauce using a 1/4 cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt, 1 Tablespoon Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, and the Zest of 1 lime, plus juice of 1/2 lime. Just combine al the 3 ingredients in a small bowl and refrigerate until ready to use, real easy to make. For the Mini Taco Dip Tostadas I needed 1/2 – Packet Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Tortilla chips, preferably round, 8 ounces Jennie – O 99-percent Fat-Free Ground Turkey, 1/2 cup Low Sodium Canned Black Beans, rinsed and drained, Pinch Sea Salt, Fresh Cracked Black Peppercorn, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to taste, optional, and 1 cup Sargento Shredded Reduced – Fat Cheddar Cheese.

 

 

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.Place chips in on a broiler-proof baking sheet set aside. Brown the turkey in the skillet, breaking it up with a fork, until the meat is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of the taco seasoning, salsa and some salt and black pepper. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Spread turkey mixture across all the chips and top with the cheese. Broil long enough to melt cheese and heat the chips, and then let cool and serve! This is a real keeper recipe! We could have made a meal of just these, everyone enjoyed them! I left the full recipe at the end of the post. For dessert later tonight a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread topped with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos

 
Beautiful day out, a little humidity but not bad. My Mom is doing a lot better and getting around fine. For dinner it was Turkey Tacos. Turkey Tacos 005I used Honeysuckle White Ground Turkey (97/3). I seasoned it a bit with Cilantro, Sea Salt, and Smoked Ground Cumin and I used Old El Paso Taco Seasoning.

 
For the Taco fillers I had Green Giant Summer Crisp White and Yellow Kernal Corn, sliced Black Olives, shredded Lettuce, Arugula, Sargento Mexican 4 Cheese, and Old El Paso Medium Taco Sauce. To assemble my Taco I first layered the bottom with shredded Lettuce, the Lettuce helps soak up any moisture so the bottom of your Taco doesn’t get soggy. After the Lettuce I layered in my ground Turkey, then Black Olives, Corn, Arugula, Taco Sauce topped with the Shredded Cheese! I love a Taco when it all comes together! For dessert/snack later this evening a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly time Pop Corn.
