Dinner Tonight: Leftovers - Cheesy Stuffed Turkey Sausage Pasta Bake w/ Baked French Bread
For breakfast I toasted up a couple of Eggo's w/ Nutrigrain along with a couple of Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. A change in the weather again, 56 degrees and sunny yesterday to 39 and cloudy today. They say we have some more single digit weather coming back in for next week also. Not much going on today, did some light cleaning around the house and swept up around the deck and the car port. After that an afternoon of some College Basketball. For dinner tonight it's all about the Leftovers! I reheated the Cheesy Stuffed Turkey Sausage Pasta Bake w/ French Bread.
Tonight it was all leftovers! The new recipe I prepared last night, Cheesy Stuffed Turkey Sausage Pasta Bake, was so good it's the leftovers for tonight's dinner! This is one delicious recipe I cam across and is now in the "Keeper Recipes". So I reheated the dish in a small baking dish that I covered with foil, reheated in the oven at 300 degrees until heated through. I also heated up the leftover Pillsbury French Bread. Everything heated up to perfection! This one delicious dish, if you're looking for a great Pasta Dish you have to try this one out. I left last night's post with the recipe and instructions below. Enjoy!
I came across this recipe idea in the latest issue of the Food Network Magazine in an ad for Jimmy Dean Sausage. The recipe calls for; 1 package Jimmy Dean® Regular Flavor Pork Sausage Roll, 1 pound rigatoni or penne pasta, 1 24-ounce jar spaghetti sauce, 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 container ricotta cheese, 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (divided), 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional).
But to save on calories, fat, and carbs I made some substitutions. Instead of the Jimmy Dean®
To prepare the dish; I preheated the oven to 350°F. Then while the oven was heating up I cooked
