Turkey Southwest Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

Today’s Menu: Turkey Southwest Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

To start my morning off I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and a high of 58 degrees. We had a cold front move in with a low of 36 degrees this morning! Did a little home maintenance today. Changed the furnace filters and did some repair work on the flooring trim. Went to Home Depot a little later and and bought 5 new floor vents and replaced the old vents with them. For Dinner tonight Something New, Hamburger Helper Southwest Pasta. Tonight its Turkey Southwest Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

I came across the Hamburger Helper Southwest Pasta while at Meijer the day before. It’s New from Hamburger Helper. The box contains the Pasta, Sauce Mix, Black Beans, Corn, and Spices. I’m substituting Ground Turkey for the Hamburger the directions call for. I’ll be adding 1 lb. Jennie – O Extra Lean Turkey Breast, Water, 2% Milk, Sargento Off the Block Mexican 4 Cheese Blend, and I’ll be adding a 1/2 can of Cooked Del Monte Whole Kernel Corn. You can always add your choice of extras to it like Beans, Green Chilies or Onions.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; Brown the Turkey in a skillet over medium-high heat 6 to 7 minutes, breaking up and stirring; drain. Return cooked Turkey to skillet. Stir in 2 cups of Hot Water, Milk, Sauce Mix, Corn, and Pasta. Heat to boiling. Reduce the heat. Cover and simmer about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and get ready to eat! I sprinkled the Sharp Cheddar Cheese across the top when done.

 

 

 

 

Hamburger Helper has another winner! Fantastic Seasoning and plenty of Black Beans and Corn. The Turkey works perfect with it in place of the Ground Beef. Plus I saved calories, fat, and carbs by using the Jennie – O Extra Lean Turkey Breast! Another good one to have in the pantry! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For a Snack later a bottle of Diet Peach Snapple and a bag of Snyder’s 100 Calorie Pretzels.
