Today’s Menu: Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked French Bread

 

 

Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna 015
For Breakfast it was leftovers, Skillet Potatoes and Ham. Had enough leftover from yesterday to have this morning. Went out to get the morning papers and it was a bit nippy out there, about 31 degrees. For the day it was near 52 degrees and sunny, nice day out. Did some light cleaning inside and took the leaf blower on the outside and cleaned around the house and wooden deck. Mom has started her Spring Cleaning, no one is safe when she starts this yearly thing! I can get away if need be but poor Dad can’t get around so good so he’s going to be a huge target to recruit for the cleaning! It’s every man for his self now, sorry Dad! Anyway for dinner tonight it’s a family favorite, Lasagna. I prepared Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked Italian Loaf Bread.

 
I wasn’t sure on what I wanted for dinner and then yesterday Mom had mentioned Lasagna. Sounded good, the Dinner problem was solved! Turkey Lasagna tonight.

Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna and Baked French Bread 002
I’m using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, which I had in the freezer so I sat it in the fridge to thaw overnight. I use the recipe that’s on back of the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna Box as a guide. Making changes to some of the ingredients to reduce calories and carbs. I used the following; 1lb Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 3 cups (26 oz jar) Ragu Pasta Sauce, Sliced Mushrooms (optional), 1 1/2 cups Water, 1 3/4 cups (15 oz container) Kroger Part Skim Milk Ricotta Cheese, 2 cups (8 oz) Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, divided, 1/2 cup grated Kraft Parmesan Cheese, 1/2 cup chopped fresh Parsley, 1/2 tsp Sea Salt, 1/4 tsp ground Black Pepper, and 6 pieces Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna, uncooked. Cutting calories and carbs by using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast and the Kroger Part Skim Milk Ricotta Cheese, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Cheese.

Then to prepare it, Heat oven to 350°F. In a skillet, over medium-high heat, brown Turkey; season to taste and drain of excess fat. Add the Pasta Sauce, Mushrooms, and Water; simmer about 10 minutes. Pour about 1 cup Sauce on bottom of a 13×9 foil pan. Arrange 3 UNCOOKED pasta pieces lengthwise over sauce; cover with 1 cup sauce. Spread one-half Ricotta Cheese over Sauce. Repeat layers of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST LASAGNA, Sauce and Ricotta Cheese filling. Top with layer of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST LASAGNA and remaining Sauce; sprinkle with Mozzarella Cheese. Cover with foil. Bake 45 minutes. Remove foil; bake additional 10 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

The Lasagna comes out perfect, love this recipe! Everything tasted so fresh and as usual the Jennie -O Turkey was the star bringing everything together to make one delicious dish! Plenty of leftovers for another meal or to freeze for later use. I’ve frozen this several times and it always comes out great after reheating. I left the original recipe at the bottom of the post. With just a few changes I saved on calories, carbs, and fat grams. The original recipe is at the end of the post. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Frozen Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread

 

 

 
Fairly nice day out today, a high in the 50’s. This sinus infection has really kicked my butt! Still not feeling up to par but managed to get out and pick up a few items at the store I needed and then back to bed. Dinner tonight; Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread.

 

 

 

Healthy Harvest Lasagna Bread
I wanted a hot dinner but I wanted something easy to prepare so I went to the freezer and pulled out some of the frozen Healthy Harvest Turkey Lasagna. I had made a batch of this a while back and froze some of it. It freezes up and reheats real good. I let it thaw in the fridge and then microwaved it. Came out as good as the day it was made! I’ll leave the recipe for this from a previous post. Along with the Lasagna I baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 
I used the recipe that was on back of the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna Box, Healthy Harvest Easy Lasagna. I made using the following; 1lb Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 3 cups (26 oz jar) Ragu Light Tomato and Basil Spaghetti Sauce, 1 small container of Baby Bella Mushrooms (sliced), 1 1/2 cups Water, 1 3/4 cups (15 oz container) Miceli’s Lite Ricotta Cheese, 2 cups (8 oz) Sargento Shredded Mozzarella/Provolone Cheese, divided, 1/2 cup grated Kraft Parmesan Cheese, 2 Eggs, 1/4 cup chopped fresh Parsley, 1/2 tsp Sea Salt, 1/4 tsp ground Black Pepper, and 9 pieces Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna, uncooked. Cutting calories and carbs by using Ground Turkey Breast and the Miceli’s Lite Ricotta Cheese.

 

 
Then to prepare it I just went by the instructions on the box which are: Heat oven to 350°F. In 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat, brown meat; drain. Add spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, and water; simmer about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, one-half mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, eggs, parsley, salt and pepper. 5. Pour about 1 cup sauce on bottom of 13×9-inch baking dish. Arrange 3 UNCOOKED pasta pieces lengthwise over sauce; cover with 1 cup sauce. Spread one-half cheese filling over sauce. Repeat layers of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST LASAGNA, sauce and cheese filling. Top with layer of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST LASAGNA and remaining sauce; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil. Bake 45 minutes. Remove foil; bake additional 10 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. The Lasagna came out perfect! You should come out with one delicious dish of Homemade Lasagna!
