Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Meatball Pasta Bake w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 37 degrees and mostly cloudy out today. After I had my Tea I headed out to the Grocery Store. I first went to Kroger for Mom and then on to Meijer for a few items. Back home cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. Spent the rest of the day watching NFL Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Meatball Pasta Bake and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. I didn’t want the leftovers to go to waste from Thursday night’s Dinner so I reheat the Meatball Pasta Bake. Just as good the 2nd time! I left the original post from the other night for directions and description. Enjoy!

 

To make this recipe I’ll be needing: Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta, LaRosa’s Sauce, Meijer Turkey Meatballs, LiteHouse Dried Oregano, Morton’s Lite Salt, Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

I first turned the oven on to 425 degrees. To prepare it was easy! I used the Leftover Meijer Turkey Meatballs in the LaRosa’s Sauce. I put those in a sauce pan and reheated them on medium low, stirring often.

 

 

 

 

As the Meatballs and Sauce was heating I made my Pasta. I grabbed a large sauce pan and filled it 3/4 full of water, added the Salt to the water. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and stirred; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. I removed the Pasta just before it was done. It will finish in the oven without getting over cooked. Drain well.

 

 

 

I added the Pasta to casserole glass dish. Reseason with the Salt and added the Oregano and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Stirred until well mixed. Next I added Meatballs and Sauce and stirred until the Pasta was well coated with the Sauce and the Meatballs mixed in.

 

 

 

Topped everything with the Mozzarella Cheese and Oregano. Popped it in the preheated oven. and baked for about 20 minutes. I really wanted all those flavors to marry together. Before removing from the oven I switched it on to the broiler and left it in the oven another 3 minutes to get the Cheese a little brown on top. Done and ready to serve!

 

 

 

Served it in a bowl, I topped it with a sprinkle of the Grated Parmesan Cheese. One delicious dish! By making extra Meatballs in Sauce I got 2 delicious meals out of it. I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish, especially Pasta Dishes!

Today’s Menu: Meatball Pasta Bake w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 3 slices of Glier’s Turkey Goetta, fried 1 medium Egg Sunny Side Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Finally found the Glier’s Turkey Goetta on my last visit to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I love Goetta! Cloudy with rain showers late in the afternoon, high of 44 degrees. Went to Kroger for Mom after Breakfast. When I got to Kroger it was busy but the time I left it was packed. I’ll be glad when the Holidays are over and stores get back to normal. Gave Mom a hand in making Chocolate Fudge, Buckeyes, and Chex Mix. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Meatball Pasta Bake and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

To make this recipe I’ll be needing: Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta, LaRosa’s Sauce, Meijer Turkey Meatballs, LiteHouse Dried Oregano, Morton’s Lite Salt, Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

Today’s Menu: Abe Froman Pizza (Sausage Pizza)

 

 

 

To start this Monday morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also fried up 3 slices of al fresco Chicken Bacon and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. 73 degrees with rain and thunderstorms out to today. I spent most of the day resting. I’ve had a bad Sinus Headache for the last day or so. So some rest and doing nothing felt real good. Feeling a lot better as the day went on! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Abe Froman Pizza (Sausage Pizza).

For those not familiar with who Abe Froman is – Abe Froman Sausage King of Chicago is a mentioned character in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off movie, who reserved a dining spot at the Chez Quis restaurant but was a no show. His identity was stolen by Ferris Bueller in the movie. So another name for a Sausage Pizza is an Abe Froman.

 

 

 

I’m having a Abe Froman PizzaTonight (Sausage Pizza). I’ll need; Stonefire Wholegrain Naan Bread, Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Italian Dinner Sausage, LaRosa’s Pizza Sauce, sliced Mini Portabella Mushrooms, sliced Italian Marinated Green Olives, and Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese. I love this Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread, it tastes so fresh and bakes up perfect!

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; I first Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Next I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam No Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. I’m using Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Dinner 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 the skillet. When done I removed them from the skillet to a plate and sliced the Sausages into bite size pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Sausage was cooking I sliced up the Green Olives. Then I got a baking sheet and lined it with foil. With the oven preheated, I put the 2 Naan Breads on the tray and sprayed the tops with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. Slid the tray into the oven and baked for 2 minutes. Removed it from the oven and let them cool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Bread cooled I added the toppings on top. I started with the LaRosa’s Pizza Sauce. Next I added the Mozzarella Cheese, sprinkled the Mushrooms and Olives, then I loaded it up with the Turkey Sausage, and topped it with some more of the Mozzarella Cheese. Slid the baking sheet back into the oven to bake.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I baked the Naan Bread Pizzas for about 9 minutes, until the ingredients had heated through and Cheese melted. Pulled the baking sheet from the oven and let the Pizzas cool for 3 minutes. The Naan Bread makes a perfect Pizza Crust! The Crust had excellent taste and baked up perfect. Then with all my toppings had some great Pizza. The new Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Dinner Sausages were flat out delicious on the Pizza! Plus a lot fewer calories and carbs than normal Pizza Pies. There were 2 of Naan Breads in the package. Mom wanted some Pepperoni Slices so one one of the Naan Breads I added Hormel Turkey Pepperoni to it. I always have couple of packs of the Stonefire Naan Bread in the freezer. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.
