Today’s Menu: Baked Stuffed Clam w/ Bay Scallops Spaghetti

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Still some passing showers in the area, 79 degrees and humid. Well we got plenty of rain the past 3 days and we needed it! The lawns in are were turning brown so the rain was very welcome. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway areas. Then after Lunch got the hedge clippers out and trimmed the vines along the driveway. Good to get out and do some work outside. For Dinner tonight its Seafood and Pasta! I prepared Baked Stuffed Clam w/ Bay Scallops Spaghetti.

 

 


I was out yesterday and stopped by a Kroger and picked up a couple of Matlaw Stuffed Clams and some Bay Scallops for tonight’s Dinner. Kroger are the only one that carries the Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand). We have these every so often and love having them! For the Stuffed Clams I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Lined a small baking sheet with foil and placed the Clams on it. I sprinkled some Sea Salt on them and a drizzle of Lemon Juice. When the oven was ready I baked the Clams until heated through, about 25 minutes. Meaty and seasoned just right, with a side of Louisiana Remoulade Sauce. It’s the perfect dip for all Seafood.

 

I purchased some beautiful looking Bay Scallops from Kroger the day before. Rinsed them in cold water and stored them in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag, kept them in the fridge until ready to use. To make the Scallops I’ll need; 2 tablespoons Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1 1/2 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, Bay Scallops (rinsed and patted dry), Parsley, Cayenne Pepper, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn (to taste).

 

 

 

 

in a large nonstick skillet coated with Pam Cooking Spray, cook scallops in 1 teaspoon Oil and 1 tablespoon of Butter, over medium heat. Seasoned immediately as you add them to the pan, Cayenne Pepper, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn to taste. Cook the Scallops until firm and opaque; remove and keep warm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Thin Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti. To prepare the Spaghetti; cook the Pasta according to package directions. As the Spaghetti finishes drain and season. To serve make a bed of the Thin Spaghetti and top with the Bay Scallops. Topped everything with some, Dried Parsley, fresh Shaved Parmesan Cheese and a splash of the Extra Light Olive Oil. Stuffed Clams, Scallops, and Spaghetti, I love it! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams

Set Sail for Something Different for Dinner Tonight!
It’s the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner tonight?” Instead of reaching for another steak, pork chop, or that old standby, chicken nuggets for the kids, set sail for something different:
a bounty of delicious options from under the sea.

With families today looking for healthier and more flavorful meal options than ever before, seafood lovers young and old will enjoy discovering new items in the frozen seafood section that are convenient, affordable and tasty. That’s why, Matlaw’s, creator of America’s #1 Seafood Appetizer, has introduced a full line of products that the whole family will love.

From classic New England Style, Bacon and Cheese, Chorizo or Chili Lime Stuffed Clams served in a natural clam shell; to Crispy Original, Barbecue, or Coconut Popcorn Shrimp; and Southwest Tortilla Breaded Cod, Jalapeño Breaded Cod, or Pubstyle Battered Cod, these exciting new flavor combinations are sure to have family members asking for more every night of the week.

 

Scallops

Scallops are mollusks that have two beautiful convexly ridged, or scalloped, shells. They consist of two shells hinged at one end which is why they are known to marine biologists as bi-valve mollusks. The edible portion of the scallop is the white muscle that opens and closes the two shells and is called the “nut.”
Similar to oysters and clams, scallops are filter feeding bivalves (two shells) that can be influenced by the contents of the surrounding waters. Certain plankton and the presence of scallop roe can influence the color of some scallop meats.

Why they’re healthy: Scallops are more than 80 percent protein. “One 3-ounce serving provides 20 grams of protein and just 95 calories,” says Bowden. They’re also a good source of both magnesium and potassium. (Clams and oysters provide similar benefits.)

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: Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Mom went on to Church and I went to the Cemetary to put flowers on Dad’s Grave for Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there! I decided to take a ride over to our old house in Ross, Ohio. When we left Ross back in the early 80’s it was just starting to grow. And now it’s still growing! A ton of changes compared to how it was back then. Still a beautiful small town though! Back home did a couple of loads of laundry and did a little cleaning outside. But it is hot and humid out. 99 degrees and a heat index well over 100 degrees today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

A section of the Jungle Jim’s Deli

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I came across on a WordPress Blog (The Cooking Diaries) and it sounded and looked delicious. Plus it looked light and fresh, which is how I like hot weather dishes! I needed a few items to make the dish so I went to Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday. They are the only store in area anymore that carries the Ronzoni Smart or Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta Products. I love shopping at Jungle Jim’s! They carry Anything and Everything, I’m serious! You could spend an entire day in there. The Deli, Produce, and Seafood Departments are my favorites.

 

 

 

So to make the Dish I’ll need; 1 can Pink Salmon (Fresh or Canned), Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Lemon Juice, Ronzoni Garden Delight Trio Italiano Pasta, Sliced Black Olives, a few small Anchovy Slices in Olive Oil, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and 1 tube Just Add Basil Pesto. I added a few Ingredients and dropped an Ingredient from the original recipe, the original recipe and the web link are at the end of the post.

 

 

To prepare it; I first made my Pasta. Boil the Pasta according to the box; drain the Pasta and let it cool. Once cooled add the Pasta to a large bowl and add all the ingredients and fold in everything including the can of Pink Salmon. You can warm the Salmon if you prefer before adding it. Put the Pasta Salad in a large plastic bowl with a lid and set it in the fridge until your ready to use it.

 

 

 

 

The Pasta, Salmon, and Pest went great together! Everything tasted light and fresh. Excellent Dish. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers: Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 


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. Take Care all!

 

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.

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.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

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.

 

 

 

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti

From the Italian word for “strings”; these round thin strands of pasta are our most beloved shape.
A versatile pasta shape, Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti can be used in entrées, side dishes, cold salads, or broken and used in soups. Toss Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti with almost any pasta sauce of varying thickness. Tomato or cream sauces, broth-based and meat sauces, olive oil tosses and meat sauces all work well. Thin Spaghetti pasta made with a blend of 100% whole wheat and the time-honored grains: Quinoa, Amaranth, Millet, Sorghum and Teff.

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.

 

 

You can make any Meal healthier by using healthier ingredients. That includes Meatballs and Pasta! I’ll be using 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. For the Sauce I’m using LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce. Then for the Rotini Pasta I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini. For the added Cheese topping I’m using Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. The Bread is River Road Bakehouse Multi Grain Bread. 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! 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 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.

 

 

 

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 put it into the Baking Dish. 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.

 

 

 

 

The Meatballs and Rotini came out incredible! The Turkey Meatballs, Rotini Pasta, Cheese, and Sauce combined to make one delicious Dish! Plus Mom and Dad both enjoyed it. Neither is big on Pasta but had 2 servings of it!. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

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.
