Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage

 

For Breakfast Morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 58 degrees and rain all day, and all last night! Cleaned the Kitchen. Counter tops and the Microwave. That is about it for my day. I almost forgot Happy 1st Day of Fall! For Dinner tonight it’s an Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage.

 

 

I had not had this in quite a while. I Wanted something light today and a Pasta Salad sounded perfect! For my Sausage I used the Leftover Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage from yesterday. I cut the Sausage into Bite size pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage! I just heated them up in the microwave.

 

 

Then to go with the Turkey Sausage I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always tastes even better after chilling for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

 

 

To serve, I made a bed of the Pasta in a bowl and topped it with the sliced Turkey Sausage, and chowed down! The Pasta Salad and Turkey Sausage are a perfect combination. And the Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor! I also had a slice of the some leftover Garlic Bread Loaf. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Sprite Free to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea this morning for Breakfast. 77 degrees, sunny and beautiful out today! Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. Then I did a load of laundry. After Lunch it was outside to do some work. Got the leaf blower, rake, and cart out of the shed. It’s a perfect day to be outdoors! I enjoy doing yard work, good exercise and you get to be outside. For Dinner tonight it’s Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni. Another one of those delicious One Pot Meals that is too good to not use the Leftovers! I’ve left the original post from last night below for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

I tried something new for Dinner tonight, Chili Macaroni Hamburger Helper. Instead of using Ground Hamburger I chose to use Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The Turkey has less Calories, Carbs, and Fat, healthier and more delicious. To go along with the Chili Macaroni I had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light.

 

So I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

As I started the Ground Turkey was finishing I got the Chili Macaroni ready to add to the Turkey. I started by adding 2 3/4 cups of Hot Water to the Turkey Skillet. Stirred the Water and Ground Turkey and added the Chili Macaroni Pasta Packet. Stirred it all together and increased the heat to medium high, heated until boiling. Covered and reduced the heat to simmer, cooking for 11 minutes. Stirred several times as it cooked. Removed the Skillet from the heat and took the lid off and let it cool for 3 minutes.

 

Fantastic Dish, it was Seasoned perfect, the Pasta was tender and the Ground Turkey and Black Beans were perfect with the Macaroni. Then I also had the slice of Buttered Bread. It made a really good Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyders Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Add salt to boiling pasta water…..

When you make pasta, salting boiling water will add flavor from the inside out. The rule is about 1-2 tablespoons for a large pot of water, stir it until it dissolves, and once boiling, add pasta. It sounds simple (and it is!), but it will elevate the taste of your dish.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

To start this Thursday Morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 75 degrees, sunny and a little humid out today. After Lunch I took my friend out to Ross, Ohio, to the Produce Stands. I bought Mom a couple of Hanging Baskets of Mums. My friend purchased some Flowers and Pumpkins. I love going out to Ross! A small town with tons of Farms and Fields. It will always be my home out there. For Dinner tonight it’s Turkey Chili Macaroni.

 

I tried something new for Dinner tonight, Chili Macaroni Hamburger Helper. Instead of using Ground Hamburger I chose to use Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

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

 

 

To start the morning off I had a Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees, mostly sunny and low humidity outside today. Went to Kroger for Mom, she wanted me to buy some items for baking for the upcoming Holidays. She was worried as scarce as some items can be at times she might not find them later. Back home just did a few things around the yard. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

It’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight, one of our favorites! 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). For the Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti.

 

I’ll be cooking the Meatballs in LaRosa’s 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 Non Stick 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 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

As I said 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 the New York Bakery Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack tonight a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Healthy Ravioli Recipes
Find healthy, delicious ravioli recipes including cheese and spinach ravioli, and ravioli soup. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Skillet Ravioli Lasagna
This easy inside-out ravioli lasagna is the ultimate weeknight comfort food–no layering or mixing bowls required. Feel free to swap in ground turkey for the beef. Look for fresh mozzarella balls (also called “pearls”) in the specialty cheese section of your grocery store……….

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Chicken Sausage and Kale
What’s the secret to making store-bought butternut squash ravioli even more delicious? Add apple-chicken sausage, tender greens and lots of caramelized onions. We add a bit of sugar to help the onions caramelize faster, but feel free to omit it (just cook the onions a bit longer if you do). Buy prewashed chopped kale to cut down on prep time. It all adds up to an easy dinner that’s ready in just 20 minutes…………..

Crispy Baked Ravioli with Red Pepper and Mushroom Bolognese
Legend has it that toasted ravioli originated with a St. Louis chef dropping the pasta in hot oil instead of water. Here, we lighten it up by baking instead of frying and adding a serving of vegetables in the form of a vegetarian Bolognese-style sauce. More good news: this easy vegetarian dinner takes just 35 minutes to make…………..

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Making Ravioli Pasta………

When making Ravioli the dough should be paper-thin, about 1/8-inch thick. Dust the counter and dough with flour, lay out the long sheet of pasta.

When ready, brush the dough and the top of your filling with egg wash and cover them with the second length of dough you trimmed off in the previous step. The egg wash helps the dough stay in place, bonding the two layers. Press around each mound to seal, then press outward toward edges, pushing out any air pockets.

Fresh ravioli is best boiled in a pot of salted water for a couple minutes until they float to the top of the water. If you want to try baking your ravioli, spoon a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a baking pan, layer with uncooked ravioli and then spoon a little more sauce on top. Enjoy!

Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

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

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 92 degrees, sunny, and humid out. We had a heat index of 100 degrees. Too hot to do anything outside, and they say the next couple of days it will be even hotter. After my Tea I went out and watered everything down. Then I had to get some grass seed down in part of the back yard. Had everything done before it got too hot out. Did a few things inside. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen 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 for Lunch. 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 – Popcorn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Pasta Roni Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

Our Pasta Roni Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs flavor blends delicate angel hair pasta in a creamy herb sauce with other natural flavors. This delicately flavored dish is the perfect complement to your family’s favorite Italian-inspired recipes.

What You’ll Do
1 – In a medium saucepan bring water, milk and butter or margarine to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil.
2 – Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently.

Shrimp Health Benefits……….
Shrimp may have a variety of health benefits. It is high in several vitamins and minerals, and is a rich source of protein. Eating shrimp may also promote heart and brain health due to its content of omega-3 fatty acids and the antioxidant astaxanthin ( 6 , 11 , 12 , 13 ).
