Today’s Menu: White Cheddar Chipotle Pasta and Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage

 

 

 

Well Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there and a special Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom, I love you so much!

 

White Cheddar Chipotle Pasta and Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage 006
For Breakfast this morning it was toast and gravy. I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and I topped them with my favorite Gravy, Pioneer Peppered White Gravy! I’m having a problem with my right leg. It’s been giving me a lot of pain if I’m upon my walker or crutches. Aches like it did when I had my hip replaced 7 years ago. Hope that’s not it and nothing serious. Anyway Mom left about noon to go over to the rehab center to see Dad, who is not doing too good. Really worried about him. I stayed home today and caught up on some laundry for Mom and some house cleaning. Mom had dinner with Dad tonight so I was cooking for 1 tonight. I prepared some White Cheddar Chipotle Pasta and Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage.

I came across this while at Meijer a couple of weeks ago and just getting around to trying it, Zatarain’s White Cheddar Chipotle Pasta Dinner Mix. To make it I’ll need; 1 package Zatarain’s® White Cheddar Chipotle Pasta Dinner Mix, 1 package Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (cut into 1/2-inch slices), 2 cups 2% Milk, and 1 cup Water.

To prepare it, cook the sausage in large skillet on medium heat for 5 minutes or until lightly browned; stirring occasionally. Drain fat from skillet. Stir in the milk, water and Pasta Dinner Mix. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduced the heat to low; covered and simmered 15 minutes (until pasta is tender), stirring occasionally. When done removed it from the heat. Let it stand 5 minutes. The sauce thickened upon standing. Just stir before serving.

And it’s another winning dish from Zatarain’s! The White Cheddar Chipotle Pasta is fantastic. Nice and Cheesy with a hint of heat, and I added a few shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce and a sprinkle of Kroger Private Selection Shredded 3 Cheese Blend. Excellent Pasta and Sausage Dish! I also had baked a loaf of Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
