Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad w/ Kielbasa Turkey Sausage

 

Dinner Tonight Italian Pasta Salad w Kielbasa Turkey Sausage 001
For Breakfast this morning I had some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns (sprinkled with Sargento Shredded Cheddar Cheese), 1 Fried Egg, 2 slices of toasted Klosterman Wheat Bread, and it wouldn’t be complete without my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a lot of rain overnight and through out the day, warm though at 64 degrees. We were even under a Tornado warning toward the late afternoon! December and Tornado warnings aren’t a regular occurrence around here. Finished up some laundry and did some house cleaning for my day. For dinner tonight a personal favorite, Italian Pasta Salad w/ Kielbasa Turkey Sausage.

 

 

 

Red Baeans and Rice Kielbasa 002
Then for the Turkey Sausage I used Butterball Kielbasa Turkey Sausage. I normally use the Butterball Everyday Smoked Turkey Sausage but while at Meijer the other day I seen that they had the Kielbasa in stock so I grabbed a package of that. I took 1 i/2 of the Sausages and cut it in to bite size pieces. I took a medium size skillet and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray. Added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated up I added the Turkey Sausage pieces. I cooked them about 12 minutes, stirring them frequently until browned and heated through.

Today’s Menu: Kielbasa Skillet w/ Baked Rustic French Bread

 

 
Started my morning off with a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and on that I fried up some Boar’s Head Kielbasa Skillet 018Honey Smoked Ham. Topped that with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese and I was set. Also had my morning brew of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. They released my Dad from the hospital, he’s feeling better but he’s still awfully weak. Went to Kroger early this morning to pick up a few items for me and Mom. I needed a package of Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffins. They had 2 packages left on the rack and both had mold on them, not real good publicity for Kroger! Sad part is it’s not the first time. Anyway for dinner tonight another new recipe, Kielbasa Skillet. I prepared Kielbasa Skillet w/ Baked Rustic French Bread.

 

 

 

Wasn’t real sure of what to have for dinner tonight. Then while at Kroger earlier today I came across some Butterball Every Day Polska Kielbasa Turkey Sausage, I found dinner! I use the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage all the time, it had been a while since I had the Kielbasa. Next was finding the right recipe. Which I did on the Taste of Home website, which I use all the time for finding recipes. So a new recipe tonight, Kielbasa Skillet.

 

 

Kielbasa Skillet 002
I doubled the recipe so I needed the following; 1 pound Polska Kielbasa Turkey Sausage (sliced), 2 cups Del Monte Cut Green Beans, 1 cup sliced fresh Mushrooms, 2 tablespoons Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce, and 2 cups Uncle Ben’s White Rice. I used Cut Green Beans instead of French – Style Green Beans, I just prefer the Cut over French. The original recipe is at the end of the post.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, saute Kielbasa until browned. Add the Beans, Mushrooms Kielbasa Skillet 004and Soy Sauce; saute 4-5 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Serve with Rice and get ready to enjoy one delicious skillet meal! Everything works in this recipe. The Sausage is delicious and packed with flavor and the Beans and Mushrooms go great with the Sausage. And the Soy Sauce provides the great flavor. Very good recipe and great recipe to keep! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
