Today’s Menu: Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna

 

 

For Breakfast this Monday morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich using; a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried a al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty, 1/2 a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 90 degrees, humid, and rain showers in the area out today. Not much going on today. Puttered around the shed and did a couple of things. Then did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna.

 

 

 

I had no clue what to prepare for Dinner tonight. Mom suggested Lasagna, so Lasagna it is! As usual when I make Lasagna I’ll be 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), 1/2 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.

 

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, very little fat to drain. Add the Pasta Sauce 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.

 

 

Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna

The Lasagna came 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. For Dessert/Snack a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Italian Sausage Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread

 

For Breakfast on this Sunday morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I first toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Then I lightly fried a few thin-cut slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham. As the Ham was finishing cooking I added a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. Then I also I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it was sunny and 59 degrees, nice day out. They say the 70’s and low 80’s starting Monday, hope they are right! Anyway after Breakfast I went to Kroger for a couple of items then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Mom went on to Church after Breakfast. I did a couple of loads of laundry for her then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. Later on got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Before I made Dinner I went to see Dad for a bit. He has good days and bad days, was doing good today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Italian Sausage Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread.

 


I tried something a little different tonight, Buffalo Italian Sausage Lasagna. I used a 1 lb. package of Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage and a box of Hamburger Helper Lasagna. Using the Buffalo Italian Sausage in place of the Hamburger. To prepare it I just followed the instructions on the Lasagna box to prepare it. The box contained the Sauce Mix and Pasta and I added 1 lb. of Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage, 2 3/4 cups of hot Water, and 1/2 cup of 2% White Milk.

 

 

I just browned the Ground Sausage, drained and removed from heat. Then stirred in the Sauce Mix and hot water until dissolved. Stir in the Milk and Pasta. Returned to heat , and heated until boiling. Reduced the heat. Cover, and simmer about 12 minutes (Stirring occasionally). When the Pasta got tender removed from the heat and served! Came out really tasty! Good flavor and seasoning.

 

 

 

The Pasta came out tender and went perfect with the Ground Buffalo Italian Sausage substitute.I topped it with a sprinkle of Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Cheese and Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. It made 5 servings so plenty of leftovers for Dinner tomorrow. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. It turned out to be a Comfort Food Dinner, can’t wait to have it again. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Well another long day as we had to go calm Dad down twice today. The Dementia has really kicked in now. But it’s been a very long day so it was going to be something easy to prepare tonight for Dinner. So I dug through the freezer a bit and found a container with 3 servings of Lasagna in it! No more Dinner problems! I had made the Lasagna and froze the leftovers, which is sure coming in handy for Dinner tonight. I let thaw in the fridge until Dinner time. It heated up great and was delicious! For Dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free. I’ve the original Lasagna post below for ingredients and recipe directions.

I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled them with Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then placed the Sunnyside Up Egg on it it top of off. One of my favorite Breakfasts! Went out to get the Morning Papers and it is down right COLD! 1 degree and with the light wind it was below zero! Grabbed the Papers and got back inside as quick as I could. We seen a couple of rays of sunshine later in the day but only had a high of 17 degrees. So with nothing going on outside I stayed in and did a load of laundry. I then cleaned the Kitchen and cleaned the oven. For Dinner tonight Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked French Bread.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and a high of 72 degrees out there today. Right after Breakfast I headed out to Meijer for some items and back home. I had to be at my Oncologist at 10:15 for my 6 month exam. My blood work and exam looked good and I’ll go back in 6 months! Did a few things around the hose and later got the cart out and went around the yard and sprayed for weeds. Took a ride down to the lake and just relaxed. For Dinner tonight I prepared a family favorite, Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked French Bread.

 
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, very little fat to drain. Add the Pasta Sauce 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 though. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and toasted 2 Slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy out today with passing showers and it hit about 75 degrees. Our electric was turned off today from 1:00 – 5:00. It was actually after 5:00 before it came back on. They were replacing electrical boxes throughout the neighborhood today. So after the power went out I stopped by some friends house to catch up with them and then headed over to see Dad for the rest of the afternoon. Back home for Dinner tonight its Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread.

 

 

 

I’m having the Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Lasagna Complete Meal Kit. I love these Banquet Homestyle Bakes. As it says, it’s a Complete Meal Kit. All I added was a 1/2 cup of Water, a little Sea Salt for taste, and some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. To prepare it is simple and easy.

Came out hot and delicious. Nothing fancy, just good and hearty Dinner. I topped it with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

I Scrambled 2 Eggs and toasted 2 Slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cooler outside today, high of 41 and windy. It was house cleaning day today, inside and outside. After cleaning inside I went outside and trimmed the vines along the driveway. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway off. Back inside I did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Had everything done and went to Walmart, needed some Bigelow Green Tea and few other things. For Dinner tonight its Leftovers. I reheated the Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread.

Today’s Menu: Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked Bread Sticks

 

 

 

 

Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna 015
For Breakfast this morning I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Healthy way to start a Christmas Eve Day! It was a rainy night and early morning here in West Chester. Only had a low of 37 degrees and it was about 45 degrees for a high, cloudy and a light shower. Not a lot going on today. Made quite a few phone calls, wishing friends and family Merry Christmas! For Dinner tonight I prepared a family favorite, Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked Bread Sticks. Merry Christmas Everyone!

 
Just not in the mood for Ham or Turkey and Lasagna sure sounded good! 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 Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked French Bread 002back 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.
