Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Baked Texas Toast

 

 

 

To start my morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast we went up to see Dad for a while this morning. He seems as if he’s adjusted to his new surroundings but he’s still having a panic attack every now and then. Back home cleaned the house today, vacuum and dusted. Later relaxed and caught up on some programs I had recorded. For dinner tonight I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs w/ Texas Toast. Spaghetti and Meatballs really sounded good for Dinner tonight!

 

 

It’s Comfort Food tonight with Spaghetti and Meatballs! And you can make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using my favorite, Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. Kroger finally started having these back in stock! The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are some of the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 large Meatballs.

 

 

 


I’ll be cooking them in LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for about 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 


I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked my New York Bakery Light Texas Toast.

 


To serve I used a bowl and made a bed with Spaghetti. added a little Morton’s Lite Salt and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I then topped with Sauce and Meatballs. Wow this was so good, I’m very glad Kroger started stocking the Honeysuckle White Meatballs again. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Bay Scallop and Shrimp Thin Spaghetti Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Chilly morning out, 27 degrees. But the day wasn’t bad, sunny and 49 degrees. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer to do some grocery shopping, I didn’t need a lot just wanted to get out for a while. After Meijer I stopped by Kroger to pick up a few items for Mom. Then on the way home I stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad, they love that McDonald’s Breakfast. Not much else going on today so I caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared Bay Scallop and Shrimp Thin Spaghetti Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

I wasn’t sure what to have for Dinner tonight so the last night I searched the freezer to see what I could find. I’ve been using what I can out of the freezer of late and made a huge dent in items that I had even forgot I had in there! So I got a bag of White Shrimp and a bag of Bay Scallops and laid them in the fridge to thaw overnight. I’ll be having Bay Scallop and Shrimp Thin Spaghetti Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread for Dinner tonight. I’ll be using; White Shrimp I had purchased at Kroger, Bay Scallops that I also had purchased at Kroger, Old Bay Seasoning, Lemon Juice, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Extra Light Olive Oil, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti Pasta, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and a Loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread.

 

I had already cleaned and rinsed both the Bay Scallops and Shrimp. Added both to a bowl and Seasoned them with the Old Bay, Lemon Juice, Sea Salt, and Olive Oil. Mixed everything up so it was all Seasoned. Next I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Sick Cooking Spray, added a Pat of the Butter, added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated on Low Medium heat.

 

 

 

 

As the skillet was heating for the Seafood I took a sauce pan filled it 3/4 full of Water and lightly Salted it with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, heated it on High heat. Back to the Seafood. With the skillet heated I added the Bay Scallops and Shrimp. The Scallops and Shrimp will not take more than a few minutes to cook. I under cooked both just a bit because I would be adding it to the hot Angel Hair Pasta which will steam it to finish it. Put the Seafood in a bowl and set aside while my Pasta is cooking.

 

 

For the Pasta I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti. The Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Pastas are my favorite to use but tough to find in the area so now I have to order it online. Easy to prepare; Boil your water with some added Salt. When boiling add the Spaghetti and, return it to a boil. Stir occasionally, cook for 8 minutes. Drain it and get ready to serve.

 

 

 

 

I put it into a medium size bowl and seasoned it with a splash of the Olive Oil, a pat of Butter, a sprinkle of Sea Salt, and the grated Parmesan Cheese. Gave it a stir and added the Bay scallops and Shrimp, stirred and served! Oh what a dish! It combines two of my favorite foods Seafood and Pasta. I topped everything with a bit more of Lemon Juice and grated Parm Cheese. I could have this all the time. I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. Plus I love having Bread every meal and Crusty Bread with Pasta Dishes. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu:Leftovers – Baked Turkey Meatballs and Rotini Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

To start the morning of I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Well the rain has finally let up around here but there’s a lot of local flooding and the Ohio River is way over it’s banks. After Breakfast I headed up to the local Kroger to pick up a couple of items. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Mom went on to Church and stayed home and kept an eye on Dad. Did a couple of loads of laundry while she was gone. After Mom got back I had Lunch and then headed out to Walmart and Meijer to check out prices for Wood Chips and Weed Killer Fertilizer. Getting ready for Spring! I’ll check out Menard’s and Home Depot tomorrow. For Dinner tonight its Leftovers – Baked Turkey Meatballs and Rotini Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread. I heated up the leftovers from last night’s meal. I also left the original post from yesterday for directions and ingredients of the dish.

I’ve been buying this from Meijer the last few months and it’s our favorite Baked Bread.

 

 

I first turned the oven on to 400 degrees. As I said, for the Meatballs I’m using my favorite, Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. Kroger finally started having these back in stock!

Then Seasoned the Rotini with 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, some McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, and Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

Next I topped the Rotini with the LaRosa’s Sauce and Turkey Meatballs. Sprinkled more of the Grated Parm Cheese followed by a layer of Sargento Mozzarella Cheese. The oven was preheated at 400 degrees so it was ready to bake. As the Past Dish was baking I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread.

For Breakfast this morning I’m having another of the Buffalo Fillet Mignon. I love these SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon! To prepare it I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. It came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also as usual, had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

Rain, Thunderstorms, and a high of 56 degrees for a high. We have a lot of flooding across the area. So its a another indoor day. Did some cleaning; Turned the oven on and let clean, straightened up the freezer, and straightened up the pantry. After that just kicked back and watched some College Basketball. For Dinner tonight its Baked Turkey Meatballs and Rotini Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread.

Today’s Menu: Sliced Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Whole Grain Rotini

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Today is my Mom’s 90th Birthday! So, So lucky to have my Mom around all this time! After Breakfast I went to Kroger to pick up a Birthday Cake and Flowers for her and stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for her and Dad. Not a bad day out, sunny and a high of 40 degrees. Swept of the driveway and wooden deck outside. After Lunch did some house cleaning and a load of laundry. For Dinner tonight I prepared Sliced Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Whole Grain Rotini.

 


For the Sausage I’m using a favorite of mine, Jennie – O Turkey Sweet Italian Sausages. I love these about anyway I can prepare them. And tonight I’ll be slicing them up and using them with Pasta.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Sausage I took a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and preheated the skillet on medium heat. I kept the Sausage Links whole to keep all the juices in, I’ll slice them after they have been cooked. With the skillet heated I added 3 of the Sausages and covered the pan with the lid. I cooked them for 16 minutes, turning them frequently. After 16 minutes I checked one of the Sausages with a meat thermometer and it was at 164 degrees. Always be sure Turkey is at 165 degrees before eating. I let the Sausages cool for 3 minutes and sliced them into bite size pieces and set them aside until I was ready to add them to the Pasta, which I had already started to boil.

 


For the Rotini Pasta I’m using my favorite, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini. Easy to prepare; I used a large sauce pan and added 1 1/2 quarts of water and Salt and brought it to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and brought it back to a boil. Cooked uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring often. Drained the Pasta and added it to a large bowl.

 

 

 

 

Seasoned it with 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, some McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese, and topped it with LaRosa Sauce. Added the sliced Jennie – O Sweet Italian Sausages and stirred until well mixed. Served it in a bowl and topped it with a sprinkle of the Parm Cheese and some Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, fried 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 6 degrees out this morning and cloudy and 16 degrees for a high. Did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Then later on I cleaned the house, vacuum and dusted. Later on repotted an indor plant. For Dinner tonight its Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

Comfort Food tonight with Spaghetti and Meatballs! And you can make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using my favorite, Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. Kroger finally started having these back in stock! The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are some of the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 large Meatballs.

 

 

 

I’ll be cooking them in LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for about 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

 

I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread.

 

To serve I used a bowl and made a bed with Spaghetti. added a little Morton’s Lite Salt and Kraft Reduced fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I then topped with Sauce and Meatballs. Wow, this is so good, I’m very glad Kroger started stocking the Honeysuckle White Meatballs again. I made extra Meatballs so I’ll be having a Meatball Sub tomorrow, now that’s some leftovers! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Turkey Lasagna and Baked French Bread

 

 

For Breakfast on this first day of 2018 I prepared Scrambled Eggs, Turkey Sausage Links, Toast, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Scrambled 2 Eggs that I sprinkled with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I heated up 2 of the Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. And that’s how I started 2018! This morning its a cold one, 1 degree and minus 3 wind chill. So another day of staying in and not a whole lot to get done. I ran the vacuum and dusted. The rest of the day just kicked back and watched some College Bowl Games and watched some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight its Leftovers. I reheat the Turkey Lasagna and Baked French Bread.

Below I’ve left the post from yesterday for the description and instruction of the Dish.

 

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), 1/2 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.

 

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.

 

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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

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

 

 

Well why not make my favorite Breakfast for this last Breakfast of 2017! I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 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.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast this Saturday morning I prepared some Glier’s Turkey Goetta, been too long since I’ve had Goetta. I also prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not bad at all outside to be the middle of December, sunny and a high of 48 degrees! After Breakfast Later on I had to go the bank. Then stopped by a good friend of mine and dropped off some Christmas Fudge and Buckeyes my Mom had made. Back home not a lot to do so I laid back and got caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight its Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

You just can’t go wrong with Spaghetti and Meatballs! And you can make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using my favorite, Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to find these. At one time Kroger and Walmart both carried them. Then neither store carried them any longer. But last week while at the local Kroger I came across them again! They said they just started to get them again a couple of days ago. I bought a couple of packages for the freezer. I’m using a few of the Meatballs tonight. The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are some of the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 Meatballs.

 

I’ll be cooking them in LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for about 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

 

I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

To serve I used a bowl and made a bed with Spaghetti. added a little Morton’s Lite Salt and Kraft Reduced fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I then topped with Sauce and Meatballs. Wow, this is so good, I’m very glad Kroger started stocking the Honeysuckle White Meatballs again. I made extra Meatballs so I’ll be having a Meatball Sub tomorrow, now that’s some leftovers! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti

From the Italian word for “strings”; these round thin strands of pasta are our most beloved shape.
A versatile pasta shape, Whole Grain Spaghetti can be used in entrées, side dishes, cold salads, or broken and used in soups. Toss Whole Grain Spaghetti with almost any pasta sauce of varying thickness. Tomato, cream, broth-based and meat sauces, olive oil tosses all work well.

Today’s Menu: Cincinnati Style 4 Way – Spaghetti, 3 Bean Turkey Chili, and Cheese

 

 

To start my morning off I had Steak and Eggs. I love these SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon! To prepare it I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then I grabbed a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, and also added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to it. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side of the Filet 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 1/2 minutes. It came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went out to grab the morning papers and it was 30 degrees. For the day it was sunny and 42 degrees. Today was cleaning the computer day. Pulled everything out and dusted and cleaned the desk. Then took the back off the computer and dusted and cleaned the insides. Later ran all the scans and deleted some old files. A laid back day around the house today! For Dinner tonight its a Cincinnati Style 4 Way – Spaghetti, 3 Bean Turkey Chili, and Cheese.

 

It’s Chili Season Year Around, but in the Fall the Chili Season really kicks in! Usually when making a Cincinnati Style 4 Way I’m using Skyline Chili or Hormel Turkey Chili w/ Beans as my Chili, which all make a delicious Cincinnati Style 4 Way. But when I have some made, I love using 3 Bean Turkey Chili to make a Cincinnati Style 4 Way. I had made the Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili yesterday. It turned out so delicious and after the leftovers sat in the fridge overnight it tastes even better the next day!

 

 

For the Spaghetti I’ll be using my regular Pasta, the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 34 net carbs, which isn’t too bad for Pasta. While at Meijer the other day I picked a few boxes of different Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas, one being Spaghetti. Meijer is the only store where I can find all the Healthy Harvest Pasta Products anymore. Easy to prepare; Using a large sauce pot half way filled with water. Salted the Water and brought it to a boil and added the Spaghetti. Boiled it for 11 minutes; drained and served.

 

 

For the Cheese I’m using Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. To serve I used a bowl and made a bed of Spaghetti, topped it with the 3 Bean Buffalo Chili, and topped everything with Sargento Cheese. I also added a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to the Chili as it was being heated. Some mighty fine Chili Spaghetti! Some people like adding fine diced Onions also, which would make it a 5 Way. Then for a side, one of the most important parts, Oyster Crackers! Chili Spaghetti is always served with a bowl of Oyster Crackers. I used Skyline Chili Oyster Crackers with a side of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. To properly eat an Oyster Cracker you have to put 2 or 3 drops of Hot Sauce on it! It’s a Cincinnati thing! I also baked some slices of the New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. At the end of the post I’ve left the Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili Recipe. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
