Dinner tonight, another "skinny" meal from my BFF site Skinny Taste.
Turkey sausage and tomato sauce over pasta.
- 1 lb lean Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
- 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, torn
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup fat free ricotta
- 16 oz uncooked whole wheat, high fiber or low carb pasta
Remove the casings from the sausage and saute in a deep skillet. When browned and cooked through, add crushed tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Add basil and ricotta and simmer another 5 minutes. Serve 1/2 cup sauce over approx 1 cup (2 oz dry) of your favorite cooked whole wheat, low carb or high fiber pasta
1 cup of pasta with 1/2 cup of sauce is 324 calories and 8 grams of fat.
Day 12: Today I am thankful for generous kids. We just went through their 12 1/2 lbs of Halloween candy, and they happily gave up half of it to donate tomorrow!
We had fun sorting it into piles. The bigs got their first lesson on what is primo candy...all chocolate in my opinion, and what is "poop candy"...everything else, again just my opinion LOL.
The troops will be getting 85% of the candy candy, and 40% of the chocolate.

They were all very happy to share their candy, no bitching or having to persuade them at all...I'm very proud of them :)
The stash they we kept...still more than we need. I wish I was able to help out more :)
