Leftovers - Banquet Homestyle Bakes - Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread

Dinner Tonight: Leftovers - Banquet Homestyle Bakes - Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread





I had this for Breakfast yesterday and enjoyed it so much I'm having it again! I Scrambled 2 Eggs and
toasted 2 Slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cooler outside today, high of 41 and windy. It was house cleaning day today, inside and outside. After cleaning inside I went outside and trimmed the vines along the driveway. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway off. Back inside I did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Had everything done and went to Walmart, needed some Bigelow Green Tea and few other things. For Dinner tonight its Leftovers. I reheated the Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread.







I'm reheating the leftover  Banquet Homestyle Bakes - Lasagna Complete Meal Kit. As it says, its a Complete Meal Kit. All I added was a 1/2 cup of Water, a little Sea Salt for taste, and some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. To prepare it is real easy and reheating it even easier. Below is yesterday's post on how to prepare it. Enjoy!    






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 and 1/2 cup water in 8" x 8" baking dish. Stir in the pasta until well coated. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes, until pasta is tender. Carefully uncover. Stir until well blended. Let stand 5 minutes; sauce will thicken. Ready to serve!









Came out hot and delicious. Nothing fancy, just good and hearty Dinner. I also reheated the Pillsbury French Bread, perfect with Pasta Dishes. Another great item to have in the pantry! For Dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Spring is around the corner and we're already craving fresh spring fruits and vegetables. From the first strawberries of the season to tender green asparagus, spring onions and sweet-tart rhubarb, these healthy recipes celebrate the delicious flavors of the season.



Baked Strawberry Custards
Sour cream gives this healthy baked custard recipe richness and tang. It's delicious with in-season strawberries, but feel free to substitute whatever berries you can get your hands on....


Scrambled Eggs with Ramps and Bacon
In this healthy breakfast recipe, a small amount of bacon fat is enough to cook the ramps, shallots and eggs while adding amazing smoky flavor. This fast and easy recipe is quick enough for breakfast but also makes a satisfying supper when served with a green salad.


Sugar Snap Pea Salad
Sweet, crisp and snappy, this healthy pea salad recipe is all about the sugar snaps, plus a little Aleppo pepper for some heat. The creamy sheep- or goat's-milk cheese adds a touch of richness and the edible flowers give it a gorgeous pop of color. Serve this beautiful salad alongside lemon-grilled chicken or fish......

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Bone In, Bone Out......


A roast with the bone in will cook faster than a boneless roast - the bone carries the heat to the inside of the roast quicker.

Banquet Homestyle Bakes - Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread

Dinner Tonight: Banquet Homestyle Bakes - Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread






For Breakfast on this second day of Spring I Scrambled 2 Eggs and toasted 2 Slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy out today and it hit about 60 degrees. After Lunch I went over to see Dad and took him a big bowl of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili I made yesterday. We signed the Release papers today. He comes home Saturday Morning. I just hope he remains strong enough to remain here. Back home for Dinner tonight its Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread.





I'm trying the Banquet Homestyle Bakes - Lasagna Complete Meal Kit. I have Banquet Pizza Pasta quite often, so I thought I would give this one a try. As it says, its a Complete Meal Kit. All I added was a 1/2 cup of Water, a little Sea Salt for taste, and some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. To prepare it is real easy.  








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 until well blended. Let stand 5 minutes; sauce will thicken. Ready to serve!







Came out hot and delicious. Nothing fancy, just good and hearty Dinner. I also baked a loaf of
Pillsbury French Bread, perfect with Pasta Dishes. For Dessert later a Weight Water's Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
