Find healthy, delicious macaroni recipes including mac & cheese and macaroni salad. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Sweet Potato Mac and Cheese
Fiber-rich sweet potato is used as the base for the cheese sauce in this healthy, homemade macaroni and cheese recipe. The bright orange color tricks your eyes into thinking this healthy macaroni and cheese recipe is loaded with cheese, but there’s actually only about half as much cheese as compared to a traditional recipe……

Macaroni with Sausage and Ricotta
A bit of sausage goes a long way in flavoring the creamy ricotta tomato sauce in this healthy and quick pasta recipe. Serve with a green salad and crusty Italian bread…….

Macaroni Salad
Old-fashioned macaroni salad sometimes contains jarred pimientos, diced ham or pickle relish, but this version is simple and deliciously plain with fresh chopped celery, carrot and onion. A combination of low-fat mayo and sour cream lightens up the dressing, and whole-wheat elbow noodles, spinach and edamame add extra nutrients…….

Today’s Menu: Dominos Pozza

Not much time to cook tonight so I ordered a Domino’s Pizza. Hopefully things will be back to normal tomorrow. Hope so it’s my Mom’s Birthday, she’s turning 90! She went to eat with some friends and I stayed home and kept an eye on dad. I had a ton of problems with him. So without going into details I didn’t feel like cooking after a very long day. Till tomorrow, take care all!

Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a another of the delicious SayersBrook Bison Ranch Filet Mignon! I love these they’re so tender and fry up so easy. So I had Steak and Egg. I had Bison Filet Mignon in the freezer, I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I fried it like last time. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. And like last time it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast Combo! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 


We had snow showers on and off all night, none of it stuck to the ground though. Another cool day out, a high of 33 degrees and sunny out. After I had Breakfast I prepared Breakfast for Mom and Dad. I prepared Scrambled Eggs, sausage Patties, Buttery Grits, Toast, and made a pot of Coffee. Gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. Then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. For Dinner tonight it’s Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Comfort Food tonight!

 

 

I’ve been wanting some more of the Sausage and Beans for a while now. So tonight it’s Beans and Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush’s Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

 


I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let it simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages. I first sliced them up into bite size pieces then fried them on medium until they started to brown and removed them from the heat and put them in a small bowl and set aside.

 

Then using the same skillet I fried the Sausage in I fried 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, actually I fried 5 slices.  Always remember when preparing Bacon to always add 2 extra slices. Because you know you’ll grab a couple of slices, it’s called the Bacon Factor or Bacon Math. I fried it up nice and crisp and when done crumbled it up into small pieces and added it to the Beans. Sausage, Bacon, and Beans are such a natural combo, Bacon gives it that wonderful smoky flavor.

 

 

 

I love dishes that you can set and let them simmer, to me it seems to give food a much richer and deeper flavor. After a couple of hours I added the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages to the Beans. Kept the heat on low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokiness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans. I just love all the flavors, a real comfort food favorite! Another plus is the cleanup, just one dutch Oven and 1 skillet to clean. Also reheated the leftover Bakehouse Multigrain Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: The Kitchen is closed!……..LaRosa’s MEAT DELUXE Pizza

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I tries a new Bacon I cam across at Meijer yesterday, al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fried up good and was crispy after frying. It had good taste, I’ll have this more often! So for Breakfast I had the Chicken Bacon, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, 2 toasted slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another morning of below zero temperatures, minus 2 degrees. Mostly cloudy and 18 degrees for a high. It was good to get out for a while yesterday. I had a case of cabin fever! I’ll be glad when this weather breaks and we have days with sunshine and above freezing temperatures! So anyway I cleaned the, vacuum and dusted. Then later a load of laundry. For Dinner tonight I shut down the Kitchen and ordered a Pizza. Tonight it’s a LaRosa’s MEAT DELUXE Pizza.

 

It has been a very long time since I’ve had a Pizza from LaRosa’s Pizzeria! My Cousin’s son was selling LaRosa’s Gift Cards to earn money for their Football Team so I bought 1 for Mom and 1 for my neighbor next door. Mom and Dad wanted a Pizza so we’re using her LaRosa’s Gift Card. We ordered a LaRosa’s MEAT DELUXE Pizza.

 

 

 

 

We ordered a large Pizza. It comes with toppings of LaRosa’s Family Recipe Pizza Sauce and Provolone, topped with lots of Pepperoni, Sausage, Ground Beef, Capocolla Ham, and Bacon. We added Mushrooms and Olives to it also. The Pizza arrived right on time and piping hot! I forgot just how good the Pizza is at LaRosa’s. The Crust, LaRosa’s Sauce, and all the toppings make for one delicious Pizza and Meal! We really enjoyed this! More calories and carbs than I’m used to having but worth it. I make my Pizza, Lasagna, and Spaghetti Sauce all using the LaRosa’s Sauce. For Dessert later a Dole No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup. Well the Kitchen will reopen tomorrow, later!

A little LaRosa’s History……

LaRosa’s Pizzeria

LaRosa’s Pizzeria is a chain of pizzerias serving neighborhoods in Cincinnati, Greater Dayton, Central Ohio, Northern Kentucky, Southeast Indiana and central Tennessee. It was founded in 1954 by Donald “Buddy” LaRosa, along with partners Richard “Muzzie” Minella, Mike Soldano and Frank “Head” Serraino. Originally called Papa Gino’s, LaRosa later bought out his partners, and changed the name to LaRosa’s.

In addition to serving guests in its pizzerias, LaRosa’s is also the exclusive pizza served at the Kings Island and Coney Island amusement parks, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, Riverbend Music Center, Perfect North Slopes and the Great American Ball Park (home of the Cincinnati Reds).

Beginning with just one location on Boudinot Avenue in the Westwood area of Cincinnati, the family and franchise owners now operate more than 60 pizzerias, with total annual sales of over $130 million.

In 1991, LaRosa’s invested heavily in the implementation and marketing of a single number call distribution center for delivery and carry out orders. Its phone number is prominently featured in advertising. LaRosa’s is very popular in Greater Cincinnati, exceeding Domino’s, Donatos PizzaPizza Hut and Papa John’s in consumer reported purchase frequency.

LaRosa’s has always been active in the neighborhoods it serves, sponsoring local youth sports programs. On February 27, 2008, Michael Larosa became CEO of LaRosa’s, Inc., succeeding T.D. Hughes (CEO, LaRosa’s 1990-2007).

LaRosa’s signature pizza is a thin crust variety made with a distinctive thick, sweet sauce (a family recipe created by Buddy’s Aunt Dena) and topped with provolone cheese. Their menu also includes subs or “hoagys” with a variety of fillings and condiments, as well as calzones, salads, and pastas. LaRosa’s also offers its pasta sauce and other selections from its menu at
