Today’s Menu: Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce w/ Baked French Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared a packet of Quaker Oats Butter Instant Grits along with a al fresco Apple Maple Chicken Sausage Breakfast Pattie and toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter). Also, as always, my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside another nice day, 86 degrees, mostly sunny, but a bit more humid. A high school friend that I’m still in contact with came over and helped me change the batteries in my Hoveround. Afterwards we went over to a new Wings and Rings that opened up for a late lunch. First time I had a Chicken Wing from Wings and Rings in 10 years or more, they were good! Back home did some cleaning outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight tried a new dish, I prepared a Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce w/ Baked French Bread.

 

 

I love these Banquet Homestyle Bakes and for Dinner tonight I’m trying the Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce. I’ve tried a couple of the Banquet Homestyle Bakes and both are family favorites, and now we have a third favorite, Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce. As it says, it’s a Complete Meal Kit. I added 1 1/4 cups of Water, a little Sea Salt for taste, 1 small can of Pennsylvania Dutchman Mushrooms Stems and Pieces (drained), Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and Sargento Shredded Mozzarella. To prepare it is very easy.

 

Ready for the oven…

To prepare it you can bake it in the oven or cook it in a skillet on the stove top. I’m baking mine. Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F. Stir together both cans of sauce, Mushrooms, and 1 1/4 cups water in 8″ x 8″ baking dish. Stir in the pasta until well coated. Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes, until pasta is tender. Before you cover it with foil I always lightly spray the underside of the foil with Pam Cooking Spray, that way the Sauce won’t stick to it. When done carefully uncover. Let stand 5 minutes; sauce will thicken. When ready top it with the Grated Parm and Shredded Mozzarella and serve!

 

 

….and done!

Came out hot and delicious. Again nothing fancy, just a good and hearty Dinner. The Pasta and Meatballs are delicious and the added Mushrooms and Mozzarella top it off just right. As always the sauce is so good, I think the Banquet sauces that come in their Dinners is some of the best. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Dole No sugar Added Diced Peaches Cup.

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.
