Today’s Menu: Italian Style Chicken Breasts w/ Wild Mushroom Agnolotti

 

 

 

For Breakfast it was Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar/Jack Cheese. Just love this skillet meal! I guess Winter is moving in, low of 28 degrees! Had snow showers overnight and a high of 39 degrees and partly cloudy for the day. Did some laundry and some cleaning around the house. For Dinner tonight its a Italian Style Chicken Breasts w/ Wild Mushroom Agnolotti and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

For the Chicken I used the Perdue Perfect Portions Italian Style Chicken Breasts again. I really like using these Chicken Breasts, they come frozen or fresh and individually wrapped. You can grill them, bake them, or fry them which is what I did this time. I pan fried the Breast in Extra Light Olive Oil about a total of 12 minutes all together, turning them once. Fried up perfectly and well seasoned with the hint of Italian Seasoning.

 

 

 

 

I picked up a package of Buitoni Mushroom Agnolotti at Meijer the other day, been a while since I’ve had this. So I served the Chicken with a side of Buitoni Wild Mushroom Agnolotti. In case you were wondering Agnolotti is a kind of Ravioli. These are filled with fresh Portobello & Crimini Mushrooms, imported Grana Padano & Parmesan Cheeses & fresh Roasted Garlic. To prepare just add the pasta to 4 quarts boiling water; added 1 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and stirred frequently to prevent it from sticking; reduced the heat to boil gently 4-6 minutes. Seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and topped it with Buitoni Freshly Shredded Parmesan Cheese and Sauteed Mushrooms. With the added Chicken it made a perfect meal!

 

I topped the Pasta with some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

 

 

I also had baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for tomorrow’s Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Healthy Holiday and Occasion Recipes

Farmers’ Market Fried Rice
This fried rice recipe features a fall mixture of sliced Brussels sprouts and parsnips, but feel free to use whatever is fresh and in season. This recipe works best in a wok— a skillet is too small for the volume of food and requires more oil to prevent sticking. Always use cold cooked rice otherwise the fried rice will be gummy and sticky……………….

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork—and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw…………

Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes
In this easy vegetable side dish recipe, sweet potatoes are tossed with maple syrup, butter and lemon juice and are roasted until tender and golden brown. The delicious glaze that forms on these maple-roasted sweet potatoes transform this ultra-simple dish into something sublime……….

Skillet Chili Mac
Poblanos add a kick of heat to this chili mac recipe. If that’s not your thing, swap in green bell peppers to tone down the heat in this easy pasta dish, which mashes up mac and cheese and chili into a seriously satisfying skillet dinner…………..

Jalapeño Popper Mac and Cheese Bites
When you’re craving jalapeño poppers and mac and cheese and you want to eat with your hands, these easy cheesy bites—which are baked in a mini muffin tin—are just the ticket.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

 

For Breakfast I made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.Rain and 73 degrees out today, and we need some rain. I’m still dealing with some bad headaches,. My sinuses are killing me! It’s the weather. First its cool then back into the 70’s, back and forth. It needs to stay cool or warm for my sinuses to settle down. So I rested most of the day so let it it rain! For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine,Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

 

 

 

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box, leftovers coming tomorrow. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

What You’ll Do

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a couple of Breakfast Street Tacos. To make the Tacos I used 1 large Egg (scrambled), 2 Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links (crumbled), Sargeto Off the Block Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, and Mission Street Low Carb Taco Flour Tortillas. These turned out so good and the Tortillas are only 70 calories for 2 Tortillas. Excellent and delicious Breakfast. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had some showers overnight and cloudy and 52 degrees for the day. Got the leaf blower out of the shed and cleaned off the deck and driveway. Later repaired a shelving unit in the shed. Everything done I took a spin around the neighborhood and enjoyed the beautiful day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight, we love Spaghetti and Meatballs! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs).

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll be cooking them in LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for about 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

 

 

I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked my New York Bakery Light Texas Toast.

 

 

To serve I used a bowl and made a bed with Spaghetti. added a little Morton’s Lite Salt and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I then topped with Sauce and Meatballs. Wow these Turkey Meatballs are so good. I’ve found a new Turkey Meatball to use! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Kitchen Hint of the Week!

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Constantly stir your pasta during the first minute of cooking……………..

When making Pasta – A large amount of the pasta’s starches starts to release during the first minute of boiling — meaning it’s the time when the pasta is most prone to sticking together. To prevent a sticky mess, constantly stir your pasta for the first minute, and after that you can ease up and stir it every 30 seconds or so.

Turkey Southwest Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

Today’s Menu: Turkey Southwest Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

To start my morning off I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and a high of 58 degrees. We had a cold front move in with a low of 36 degrees this morning! Did a little home maintenance today. Changed the furnace filters and did some repair work on the flooring trim. Went to Home Depot a little later and and bought 5 new floor vents and replaced the old vents with them. For Dinner tonight Something New, Hamburger Helper Southwest Pasta. Tonight its Turkey Southwest Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

I came across the Hamburger Helper Southwest Pasta while at Meijer the day before. It’s New from Hamburger Helper. The box contains the Pasta, Sauce Mix, Black Beans, Corn, and Spices. I’m substituting Ground Turkey for the Hamburger the directions call for. I’ll be adding 1 lb. Jennie – O Extra Lean Turkey Breast, Water, 2% Milk, Sargento Off the Block Mexican 4 Cheese Blend, and I’ll be adding a 1/2 can of Cooked Del Monte Whole Kernel Corn. You can always add your choice of extras to it like Beans, Green Chilies or Onions.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; Brown the Turkey in a skillet over medium-high heat 6 to 7 minutes, breaking up and stirring; drain. Return cooked Turkey to skillet. Stir in 2 cups of Hot Water, Milk, Sauce Mix, Corn, and Pasta. Heat to boiling. Reduce the heat. Cover and simmer about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and get ready to eat! I sprinkled the Sharp Cheddar Cheese across the top when done.

 

 

 

 

Hamburger Helper has another winner! Fantastic Seasoning and plenty of Black Beans and Corn. The Turkey works perfect with it in place of the Ground Beef. Plus I saved calories, fat, and carbs by using the Jennie – O Extra Lean Turkey Breast! Another good one to have in the pantry! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For a Snack later a bottle of Diet Peach Snapple and a bag of Snyder’s 100 Calorie Pretzels.

Kitchen Hint of the Day

Salt the water………….

While salting your pasta water it probably won’t do much to shorten your cooking time, it will make your noodles a lot more enjoyable. Unsalted pasta is wildly bland, but just a hint of salt in the water can change that.
