Prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, 2 Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, 1
toasted slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Brea for my Breakfast. Made an early morning grocery run after Breakfast, went to Meijer for almost all the groceries and then to Kroger for a couple of items. Meijer is just a bit farther away but a huge difference in prices! Back home finished up a load of laundry for Mom and then did some light clean up outside around the drive way and out on the deck. Not too bad out, partly sunny and in the 30's with a cold wind. For dinner tonight a new recipe, I prepared Italian Turkey Rotini Pasta w/ Baked French Bread.
This recipe tonight comes from the Jennie - O website, as do many of my recipes and meals! Some Pasta just sounded good, so what better than to top it off with than some homemade Italian Turkey Pasta Sauce. I'll need the following Ingredients; 1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 2 teaspoons McCormick Italian Seasoning, ½ teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder, 1 (24-ounce) can of LaRoisa's Sauce, 1 (1-pound) box Healthy Harvest 100% Whole Grain Rotini Pasta, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. The makings of one delicious Sauce and Meal!
To prepare it in large skillet, cook the Ground Turkey as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning and Garlic Powder on top of meat. Add the Pasta Sauce and simmer for 10 minutes.
Then while Meat Sauce is simmering, prepare the Rotini Pasta according to package directions.
Drain. Place desired amount of Pasta on each plate and top with the Meat Sauce. Sprinkle with Parm Cheese, and done! A winning Italian Turkey Pasta Sauce! Fantastic flavor and the Jennie - O Turkey works perfect. Saved on calories and carbs by using JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey Breast and the Healthy Harvest 100% Whole Grain Rotini Pasta without losing flavor. Plenty of leftovers that I'll be freezing for use later.
To go with my Pasta Dish I baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later I picked up a Hill and Valley Sugar Free Angel Food Cake. I had a slice of that topped with some Del Monte No sugar Added Peach Slices.
