Today’s Menu: Egg Maccheroncini w/ Turkey Meatballs


I went out to fetch the morning papers this morning around 7 am. and it’s a bit chilly out there this morning, about 40 degrees. Scampered back inside to cook up some Breakfast. This morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin (lightly buttered), fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage, Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs (topped with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar), and a cup of the Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had a high in the 60’s and partly sunny. Went to McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts to pick up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast for them. Dropped their Breakfast off and ran a couple of errands and up to the assisted living center to see a friend of mine. Still not doing very good, not sure if he’s going to recover. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Egg Maccheroncini w/ Turkey Meatballs.


Kroger has been featuring Italian Foods for the past few weeks. An item I ran across and decided to try was Egg Maccheroncini Pasta Panarese. I haven’t found a lot of information or history of this product but here’s what I did find; Made using the traditional methods of bronze drawing and slow-drying, Pasta Panarese has a rough texture that will help the absorption of water whilst boiling, and will allow a better adherence of the sauce. The result is an evenly cooked, full flavored product much different from the industrial pasta production. It comes in lovely transparent packaging and is the ideal present for a foodie friend … It The Pasta is produced from top quality Durum Wheat Semolina grown in Tuscany. It’s made with 30% Egg. It looked good and only contains 160 calories and 30 net carbs per serving which isn’t too bad for Pasta.


For the meatballs I used Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs. I’ve been using the Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs for quite a few years now. The Meatballs are good size, always fresh, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. I heated them up in a sauce pan in a jar of Ragu Super Chunky Mushroom Sauce.




To prepare Pasta all I’ll need is McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and McCormick Italian Seasoning. According to the package instructions it said to cook the Pasta 7-9 minutes. So I used a large sauce pot, filled half way with water. I brought the water to a rolling boil and seasoned the water with the Sea Salt. The Pasta itself is a flat Noodle and comes in, what looks like, small haystack bundles. There was 6 of the bundles in the package and I prepared 3 of them. Added the 3 bundles to the pot and cooked them for 9 minutes, gently stirring them frequently. After 9 minutes removed the pot from heat and drained the Pasta. Put the Pasta into a large bowl and seasoned it with a bit more of the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and McCormick Italian Seasoning. to serve I topped with Ragu Mushroom Pasta Sauce, Fresh Shaved, Turkey Meatballs, and Parmesan Cheese. Some of the best Pasta I’ve ever had! It tasted so fresh and the Seasoning, Meatballs, and Sauce worked great with it. I purchased a couple of packages of it, I’m not sure if it’s limited time product at Kroger. For dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.
