Today’s Menu: Italian Turkey Sausage Skillet



Italian Turkey Sausage Skillet 005
Woke up to a beautiful Fall-Like Morning, sunny and around 42 degrees. As I went out and got the morning papers there was 2 flocks of Geese heading South, is that a sign? Had to go to Walmart and pick up a few items for my dinner tonight and back home for the day. Plus today is NFL Football, when the Cincinnati Bengals play I stay (home). I ran across a site called Platter Talk, and it’s packed full of great ideas and recipes (! And that’s where tonight’s recipe comes from. I prepared Italian Turkey Sausage Skillet, makes your mouth water just saying it!





Italian Turkey Sausage Skillet 001

Jennie O Italian Turkey Sausage

I saw this recipe and I had to try it ASAP! To prepare it I’ll need the following; Egg Noodles (I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Extra Wide Noodles), Jennie – O Italian Turkey Sausage, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, White Onion (diced), 1 Garlic Clove, 2% White Milk, 2 cans Creamy Tomato Soup, 1 tablespoon McCormick Italian Seasoning, 1 teaspoon fresh Parsley chopped, ¼ cup grated Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese, and Sea Salt and Pepper to taste. And all this is going to combine into nothing but good!

To prepare it start by Preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. I then cut Sausage links into 1 inch pieces. Heat the Olive Oil in 10 inch cast iron skillet over medium high heat and brown the sausage, without fully cooking it. Yes Cast Iron Skillet, my favorite Skillet! Add the Onion and Garlic (I minced my Garlic), stir and saute with sausage until soft. Stir in the Italian Seasoning, Salt, Pepper, and Parsley, set aside. I prepared egg noodles in boiling water, as directed, and drained. And now the good part! Combine the Sausage Mixture and Noodles in a mixing bowl, add the Tomato Soup (I used Amy’s Organic Low Fat Creamy tomato Soup) and stir well. Reserve the skillet for baking. Stirred in the Parm Cheese and 2% Milk and transferred back to skillet. Into the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, you can add additional Milk to prevent from drying out, if necessary. Allow to stand for 5 minutes after removing from oven. Garnish with additional Parmesan Cheese and Parsley if desired. And when this is ready to serve be prepared for one delicious dish! It’s just one huge flavor explosion! The Italian Turkey Sausage combined with all the other ingredients is so good, and if you like Pasta like I do you’ll love this. The original recipe is at the end of the post. One delicious recipe from Platter Talk, thanks Platter for having posted this one! For dessert later tonight a Jello Sugarless Dark Chocolate Mousse.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Breast Tenderloins w/ Noodles



Jen O Turkey Tenderloins Noodles 013

Started the morning off with a Scrambled Egg topped with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Cheddar, Jennie – O Turkey Lean Breakfast Sausage Links, a couple of slices of buttered Klosterman Wheat Bread, and a cup of fresh Brewed Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. How did your morning start off? Been another gorgeous day out again, be nice if it stayed like this year around! Dinner tonight; Turkey Breast Tenderloins w/ Noodles.





Jen O Turkey Tenderloins Noodles 001
When it’s a Turkey Dish it’s usually Jennie – O Turkey. I’ll be using Jennie – O Extra Lean Boneless Turkey Breast Tenderloins. To prepare it I’ll need; Turkey Breast Tenderloins, Low Sodium Soy Sauce, Swanson Low Sodium Chicken Broth, Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, Hungarian Paprika, Oregano, Parsley, Mushrooms (sliced), Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Extra Wide Noodles (100% Whole Grain), and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.





Jen O Turkey Tenderloins Noodles 003
I started by boiling some water for the Healthy Harvest Noodles, and cooked those by the package instructions. I had went to Meijer earlier this morning and purchased the Jennie – O Turkey Tenderloins. I took 2 of the Tenderloins and put them in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag and added some Low Sodium Soy Sauce to marinate and put them back in the fridge for about 2 hours. Removed them from the bag and shook off the excess Soy Sauce. I then seasoned them with Sea Salt, Pepper, and Hungarian Paprika. Then pan fried them by the package instructions on medium heat. As the Tenderloins were finishing up I added my sliced Mushrooms and the Parsley. As all that was finishing up, my Noodles were just finishing also. To serve I made a bed of the Noodles, topped with a bit of Butter, and topped it with the Turkey Breast tenderloins and Mushrooms and topped that with Oregano Flakes and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I put together the recipe last night when I was thinking about what to have for Dinner, and it turned out as one delicious and healthy recipe. The Jennie – O Turkey Tenderloins were delicious! Tender, moist, and seasoned just right. I left the Jennie – O Turkey Tenderloins product info at the end of the post for complete instructions on pan frying the tenderloins. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
