Today’s Menu: Italian Gnocchi in Pasta Sauce w/ Turkey Italian Sausages

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and topped them with Ortega Chipotle Taco Sauce and a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 92 degrees and humid outside, rain showers moving in later. I had to have the gutters cleaned out today. They needed it bad! I had bought a small can of Black Paint and I started repainting the trim of the shed. I’ll get the areas I can get to and my neighbor is coming over to get the higher parts that I can’t reach. Just certain things that out of your reach in a wheelchair. For Dinner tonight its Italian Gnocchi in Pasta Sauce w/ Turkey Italian Sausages.

 

 

 

I started preparing the Sausage first. The Gnocchi is done in a few minutes. I used Johnsonville Turkey Italian Sausages. I bought these from Meijer which carries the the full line of Johnsonville Products. I used these for the first time a couple of weeks ago and love them! Started by browning the Turkey Sausages in a 3-quart saucepan. When done I removed them from the skillet to a plate and sliced the Sausages into bite size pieces and sit aside until the Gnocchi was ready.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Gnocchi I’m using Kroger Private Selection Italian Gnocchi with Potato (Northern Italian Dumplings crafted with Potatoes and W heat). For my Pasta Sauce I’m using my favorite, LaRosa’s Family Recipe Original Pasta Sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Gnocchi is super easy to prepare. I grabbed a large sauce pan and filled it with about 3/4 full of water, Salted the water with Morton’s Lite Salt. Heated the water on high to a boil. Then added the package of Gnocchi. Boiled for 3 minutes until the Gnocchi floated to the top. Removed from the heat, then into a strainer. From the strainer to a large bowl where I salted it and added the Larosa’s Sauce. Stirred until well mixed and the added the sliced Italian Sausages.

 

 

 

 

Served it in a bowl topped with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and a sprinkle of Dried Oregano. The Gnocchi was nice and firm and tender. Plus that Johnsonville Italian Sausage is just incredible! Just so many dishes that this goes with or just to have the Sausage by itself! So glad they have come out with this line Turkey Sausages. One delicious and hearty meal! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Meatballs

 

 

 

Finally starting to feel better today! The soreness and cough have all but gone away and even woke up hungry! Made a Scrambled Egg, Turkey Sausage, Wheat Toast, and a hot cup of of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Now if I can just get Mom and dad healthy. Dad is still in the hospital, and Mom possibly should be. I would have to call in the SWAT to get her there though, very stubborn lady. She is some what better but still has an upset stomach. I did make Mom some soup for her lunch and soup and a Turkey Sandwich for dinner. For my dinner I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs.

I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti, my favorite Pasta. Cooks up great and an excellent tasting Pasta. Then for my Meatballs I used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are good size, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and their 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. I almost always use Jennie -O when using Turkey but no store in this area sells Jennie – O Turkey Meatballs. I always prepare extra Meatballs so I can make a Meatball Subs with them. For my Pasta Sauce I used LaRosa’s Original Sauce. A local favorite and still one of the best Sauces I’ve had. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Spaghetti

Here’s something to absorb: One serving of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta has over 20% of your daily recommended fiber intake – but did you know that fiber is good for you in more ways than just digestion?

People with diets high in fiber have a lower risk for weight gain, obesity, development of insulin resistance and diabetes. Fiber also prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulitis, but it also helps reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases like colon and breast cancer. Fiber may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and total cholesterol, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. It can also help lower blood sugar to better manage diabetes.

Dietary fiber is the edible part of plants, primarily carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the small intestine. Fiber may be digested by fermentation in the large intestine. By eating high fiber foods you feel fuller, eat less, with fewer absorbed calories.

Fiber comes in two basic forms – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, seeds, brown rice, oats and barley. It prevents or reduces the absorption of certain substances into the bloodstream. Insoluble fiber is found mainly in whole grains and on the outside of seeds, fruits, legumes, and other foods. It is like a sponge that swells within the intestine to promote more efficient elimination and alleviate some digestive disorders.

Fiber is found only in plant foods and passes through the digestive tract without being completely broken down. Being indigestible, fiber provides no nutrients to the body, which is why for many years it was removed from processed foods like white bread. But, nutritionists have since discovered that fiber performs valuable functions precisely because it is not digested, and it is essential to good health.

Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs 004

 

Well my Dad is back in the hospital. It looks as though he’ll be there a couple of days. He was having a hard time breathing again, they said that he had fluid built up around his heart and lungs. They have him on a couple of prescription drugs to clear it up before it goes to pneumonia. Hopefully he’ll be home soon. Mom ate with Dad at the hospital so it was solo cooking for dinner. Tonight one of my favorites, Spaghetti and Meatballs.

For my Pasta Sauce I used LaRosa’s Original Sauce. A local favorite and still one of the best Sauces I’ve had. The night before I had prepared Meatballs in the Larosa Sauce to make a Meatball Sub, so I made extra so I just reheated that for my Meatballs and Sauce. For dessert/snack later a I bought a new Item, Hormel Snackers Chili and Cheese Dip. Just microwave for 1 minute and it’s ready. So I’ll try that and have some Tostito’s Multi-Grain Scoops with it.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Meatball Mini Sub

 

 

 

Turkey Meatball Sub 005
It’s been another Beautiful day in the neighborhood outside again. A tad warmer though, we hit 80 degrees today. Went to Meijer for Mom this morning and back home. Didn’t do a lot today, not feeling up to par today. For dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Meatball Mini Sub.

 

 

 
I used Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs. I usually try to use Jennie – O Turkey Products but as far as I know none of the local stores carry the 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 their 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. For my Pasta Sauce I used LaRosa’s Original Sauce. A local favorite and still one of the best Sauces I’ve ever had.

 

 

 
For my Hoagie Bun I used Kroger Brand 100% Whole Wheat Hoagie Rolls. For my Cheese I used Boar’s Head Lower Sodium Provolone Cheese, first time I tried this and love it! Has a really fantastic Creamy Flavor to it. Loaded the Hoagie Roll up with the Meatballs and Sauce, topped it with a slice of Provolone Cheese and baked it at 400 degrees until the the Roll was toasted and Cheese melted. These Hoagies are too good! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Spaghetti LaRosa Sauce
Humid and hazy out today. Went and seen Dad this morning, looks as though he may come home around September 10th. Came home and repaired Mom’s Sweeper for her. Then watched College Football for the afternoon, first weekend of Football! Love Football starting but that also means that the Summer is almost over! It went quick this year. Mom ate with Dad at the rehab center so it was solo cooking for dinner. Tonight one of my favorites, Spaghetti and Meatballs.

Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Meatballs

 

 

 

Another cloudy day but it’s in the low 50’s, not bad for December! Went to Walmart and picked up a few items that were on sale for Christmas Gifts and picked up a couple of items for tonight’s dinner. Tonight one of my favorites, Spaghetti and Meatballs.

Spaghetti LaRosa Sauce

 

 

I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti, my favorite Pasta. Then for my Meatballs I used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and their 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs.

 
I normally use Bella Vita Low Carb Pasta Sauce but here lately I’ve been using LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce. I added my Meatballs and Sauce to a Sauce Pan and then added a small jar of Green Giant Sliced Mushrooms and simmered on low until all was heated. I topped the Spaghetti and Meatballs with some fresh grated Murray’s Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
