It’s no surprise that I am doing Weight Watchers and having really great results so far.
The biggest thing for me has been portion control and the snacks that I eat. I used to snack on almonds…not anymore.
We have been eating lots of the frozen dinners recently just because it’s easy. But I was getting tired of them. I went on WW’s website last week and scoured to find some new recipes. Who doesn’t love finding a new recipe?
I found quite a few that were within my points that I was willing to eat, and printed them off. Tonight I tried my first new WW recipe. I would add a little more salt to it (or more spices in general), but overall it was really good.
- 1 spray(s) cooking spray
- 2 medium green pepper(s), cut into thin strips
- 1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced
- 1 medium uncooked onion(s), thinly sliced
- 1 cup(s) fresh mushroom(s), sliced
- 1 pound(s) uncooked turkey sausage(s), spicy-Italian flavor
- 1/8 tsp dried oregano, crushed
- 1/4 tsp table salt
- 1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 14 1/2 oz canned diced tomatoes
- 3 cup(s) cooked whole wheat pasta, penne, kept hot
- 6 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
- Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. Add green pepper, garlic, onion and mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, until almost tender, about 7 to 8 minutes.
- Remove turkey from casings; add turkey to skillet and brown until no longer pink, stirring occasionally, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks, about 6 minutes. Add oregano, salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes; stir in tomatoes. Simmer until heated through and to allow flavors to blend, about 5 minutes.
- Spoon penne into a deep serving bowl; top with sausage mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.
This is straight from their website. I added an extra can of tomatoes to the sauce and I used a pound of turkey. It turned out really well. Like I said before, I would probably double the spices though to give it a little bit more of a kick, but otherwise it was really good. Jeremy liked it as well.
