Today’s Menu: Turkey Sausage Baked Penne

 

 

 

Turkey Sausage Baked Penne 007
Windy with showers on and off all day. I heard on the news last night, Wednesday or Thursday morning it’s going to go back down to 36 degrees, Enough all ready! Went to Walmart, needed a new water hose and picked up a couple of other items while there. Tried a new recipe tonight for dinner, Turkey Sausage Baked Penne. “It’s a keeper recipe”

 

 

 
Came across a similar recipe in a Pillsbury Magazine but it was about 590 calories and 57 carbs. So I lightened up a bit by using healthier ingredients. I needed; 1/2 Box of Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Penne Pasta, 1/2 lb. Jennie – O Breakfast Sausage (my favorite sausage for Breakfast), 1/2 cup Part – Skim Ricotta Cheese, 1 Garlic Clove (Minced), 1/2 teaspoon dried Basil Leaves, 1/4 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Sea Salt and Pepper to taste, 2 cups Ragu Chunky Mushroom Pasta Sauce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella.

 

 

 
To prepare it, Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a glass baking dish with Pam Spray, size of dish will vary according to how much you prepare. Start by cooking the Pasta as directed on package, use the minimum cooking time as Pasta will continue to cook when baking. Heat up your favorite skillet over medium heat. Add the Jennie – O Sausage and cook till no longer pink, drain. Then in a large bowl, stir together Sausage, Ricotta, Garlic, Seasoning, and 1 cup of the Ragu Pasta Sauce. Add the cooked Pasta, gently toss. Spoon the mixture into the baking dish. Top with the other cup of Ragu Pasta Sauce and top with the Mozzarella Cheese. Then just bake, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes or until it’s thoroughly cooked through and Cheese is melted.

 

 

 
This came out delicious! And why not, Pasta, Turkey Sausage, Spices, and Cheese! Fantastic flavor and leftovers for lunch tomorrow. You can double the ingredient amounts to make a larger serving, I cut everything in half when I prepared it tonight. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

BREAKFAST Turkey Sausage 002

They say it’s Spring but it sure doesn’t feel like it this morning! It’s sunny but only 22 degrees as I go to grab the morning paper. Cold or not, I started my morning off right with a delicious and healthy Breakfast. I prepared one Egg Sunny Side Up, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Sausage Patties, 2 Slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread (buttered with I can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), and a cup of hot brewed Bigelow Green Tea. Add the Morning Paper and I’m all set for the day! Now if it would just warm up and stay warm!

Today’s Menu: Pizza Bread w/ Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower

 

 

 
Well if you live in or around Cincinnati you know it’s Opening Day. For this area as it’s always been it’s Christmas, Thanksgiving, and all the other Holiday tied into one day, Opening Day! It starts with 95th consecutive Findlay Market Parade that goes through the heart of Cincinnati and the party shifts on over to the Ball Park for the Red’s Opener. It’s the one day where kids can miss school for a day and you can call in sick to work, because they all know what you’re really doing! They might as well make it an official Holiday around here, which they’re trying to do I hear.

 

 

Pizza Bread Buffalo Cauliflower 005
It’s a perfect day out today, sunny with a high close to 70 degrees! About time don’t you think. What a Winter we’ve had, along with the rest of the nation. Went to Walmart early and finally got a new gas grill, our other one finally died after 8 years. I haven’t got it together yet but can’t wait to fire it up! I’d like to try to buy a small smoker hopefully here shortly. For dinner tonight something a little different, Pizza Bread w/ Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower. A buddy of mine came over and watched the Red’s Game with me, so I whipped this up for us.

 

 

 

Pizza Bread Buffalo Cauliflower 001
Started by preheating my oven to 400 degrees. I used a loaf of Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I cut the loaf in half, lengthwise, and then cut halves into small slices. I think normally a French Bread Loaf is used but the Sourdough Loaf has fewer calories and carbs, plus it bakes just as well also. After cutting the bread, using a small basting brush, I spread a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil across the tops of each slice. Put them on a foil lined Cookie Sheet and baked them for about 4 minutes, just to lightly crust the tops. Removed them from the oven and assembled y Pizza Breads.

 

 

 

Pizza Bread Buffalo Cauliflower 004
For toppings I used a small can of Sliced Black Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage (crumbled), fresh grated Light Havarti Cheese, fresh grated Light Monterey Jack Cheese, and Ragu Homemade Style pizza Sauce. As always I try to cut calories, fat, and carbs where I can on ingredients. The Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage comes in a roll. So I sliced several pieces of and crumbled them and fried them in Canola oil until they were done. Drained what little grease there was and it was ready to be used as a topping. I had bought the Light Cheese from Kroger, it comes in blocks and I grate and shred them myself. After heating the bread I topped them with the Ragu Sauce, then the Turkey Pepperoni, Crumbled Turkey Sausage, sliced Black Olives, and a blend of the Havarti and Monterey Jack to top everything off. These looked good and tasted even better! The Bread was nice and crusty, the Ragu Sauce added great flavor and seasoning, and the blend of the two Cheese was perfect. Very good recipe for Pizza Bread

 

 

 
I made this for the first time a while back and love it for a side to go with any dish! To prepare it I needed; 1 head cauliflower (cut into florets), 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 cup or more) hot sauce, and blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping. Then to make it is really easy I just tossed the cauliflower florets in the oil, salt and pepper, arranged in a single layer on a baking sheet and roasted in a preheated 400F oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Then, the good part, toss the cauliflower in the hot sauce. Serve it warm with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping and celery sticks on the side. It’s one delicious and healthy side dish! The Pizza Bread and Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower not my normal dinner but one delicious change! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.
