Spinach Cannelloni with Cabbage and Smoked Mozzarella
At Ristorante il San Pietro in the Piedmont of Italy, they use scamorza affumicata, an aged smoked mozzarella, but smoked fresh mozzarella works too in this healthy homemade vegetarian pasta recipe. You can substitute dry pasta, such as cannelloni or manicotti, for the fresh. Cook 12 noodles according to package directions, then stuff and sauce them……..

Chicken Tinga Quesadillas
The key to this delicious quesadilla recipe is the zippy make-ahead chicken that’s stewed with charred tomatoes and smoky chile powder, though canned tomatoes (especially the fire-roasted kind) and chipotles in adobo will do in a pinch. The spice level is up to you, so feel free to season to taste with chipotle………..

Better-Than-Takeout Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries
This healthy take on burgers and fries swaps in chopped mushrooms for some of the meat in the burger patties, to cut back on calories and saturated fat………..

Butter it up………..

Before you store semi-hard cheeses like Cheddar, Swiss or Gruyere, rub the cut edges with a little butter. You’ll never notice the taste difference, and the cheese will be less likely to dry out or become moldy

Today’s Menu: Kitchen Closed – It’s Pizza Tonight from Domino’s

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. What a day outside today, 80 degrees and sunny! We were all wondering if Spring would ever get here, and I think it has finally. After Breakfast me and Mom headed out to go see Dad for a while. He was doing pretty good today! Back home did a few things around the house and outside. Then at 2:00 I had to take Mom to an eye appointment. It took a while, she has to schedule a Cataract Removal. The Family Doc called and said all my test results came back great! Diabetes 2 numbers looked good along with the Cholesterol and the rest. Back home too much running around today so the Kitchen is Closed! Tonight its Domino’s Pizza!

 

We got out favorite, Domino’s Hand Tossed Pizza Large with Cheese, Sauce, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, and Black Olives, Green Olives. First Pizza in a while, and it was over due! As always the Pizza arrived on time, hot and delicious! I had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink. The Kitchen will reopen tomorrow! Take care all.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea and a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. A chilly 33 degrees this morning but it turned into a perfect Spring Day! Sunny and 71 degrees out! Got the Cart out of the shed and did a little yard work and then finished cleaning the outdoor furniture. Also still going through junk in the shed. Later went to see Dad for a bit. For Dinner tonight I reheated the Leftover Buffalo Italian Sausage Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread. I’ve left the original post from yesterday for the recipe and directions. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 


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 makes 5 servings. 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.

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.
