My son comes home today!!  He only left on Wednesday, so it isn’t like it was a long time or anything. But this is the first time he has been away from home and not at families house.  He has spent the weekend with his aunt and uncle, or a week at Grandma’s before.  But this was a school trip.  In Colorado they do something called Eco Week when they are in 5th grade.  They go up into the mountains to hike, camp, and learn about the outdoors for 3 days.  I can’t wait to hear all about it, I am sure they all had so much fun!!

Did you know that October is healthy pasta month?  I had no idea!  But we live on pasta at our house, so I am excited to be working with Dreamfields Pasta to celebrate!  You may remember that I worked with Dreamfields this summer on a Middle Eastern Salad.  I am super happy they asked me to create a healthier weeknight lasagna, because if I can enjoy pure comfort food without the guilt, I am one happy girl.  And if I can have lasagna on a Tuesday night, even better!

To make lasagna easy for a weeknight it is cooked in a skillet.  The noodles are broken into small pieces and then cooked, before adding to the sauce.  This easy weeknight lasagna is made healthier by using ground turkey breast as well as part skim cheeses.  And don’t for get the pasta!  Dreamfields pasta is full of fiber and protein that makes it a great choice any night of the week.  The lasagna skillet comes together in less than 30 minutes.  You are cooking the pasta at the same time you are browning the meat and making the sauce.  Then you just toss together with cheese to serve.  Definitely has all the flavors of a traditional lasagna, but in a fraction of the time!
