For my Breakfast I made a Breakfast Sandwich; Fried Kahn's Deluxe Bologna, Boar's Head Colby Longhorn Cheese, and a Healthy Life whole Grain English Muffin. Along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea! After Breakfast helped Mom with a couple of loads of laundry and it was full house cleaning day around the house. Vacuum, dusting, and straightened up the pantry. Finished the afternoon off watching some College Basketball. For dinner some delicious leftovers, Italian Turkey Rotini Pasta w/ Baked French Bread.
I enjoyed last night's dinner so much I'm having it again! I reheated the Italian Turkey Rotini Pasta w/ Baked French Bread. The Pasta Meat Sauce is off the Jennie - O website. It turned out to be a very flavorful and meaty sauce, perfect for any pasta dish. Below I've the post from last night that had the recipe for the sauce. Looking for a good pasta meat sauce, look no further! Enjoy!
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/snack later some Peanut Butter and Crackers. I used Reduced Fat Jif Peanut Butter and Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.
