Hi all! How was your Wednesday? My day started out great with a 34 minute C25K jog/walk and ended with one hearty, cheesy, doughy pasta that sticks to your ribs.
A good day indeed!
I was rushing out the door this morning so my eggwich was taken on the fly.
1 slice Nature’s Own Butter Bread topped with 1/2 Tbsp whipped butter, a fried egg and tomato slices. Cut in half for a double decker sandwich for only 3 WWFreestyle Smartpoints.Late morning snack as I knew our business lunch would be later at 1 pm. (6 hours after breakfast).
Banana and mini Jarlsberg Swiss cheese (2 sp).We had lunch at Bistro 33 and I ordered the grilled lemon chicken salad with the lemon vinaigrette on the side. This salad had so many fun things to eat. (10 sp).Dinner tonight was a recipe that The Husband picked out after seeing the picture this weekend. Below is my healthy spin on this Philly Cheese steak Gnocchi recipe.
This recipe comes together quickly so I recommend prepping everything before you start cooking.Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 lb 93% lean ground beef and cook with garlic, jalapeno, onion and bell pepper until browned.
Drain and set aside.Melt butter in the same pan.Sprinkle in flour, salt and pepper.Slowly whisk in 1 1/2 cups FF or 1% milk and worchestershire sauce stirring constantly until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.Stir in 7-8 oz of Trader Joe’s Lite 3 cheese blend.Ooey gooey cheesy sauce – yum!Return the Philly cheese steak mix and stir just until combined.Fold in cooked gnocchi.Tadah…not really fancy it pretty, but, I promise it’s so good.I love how the peppers add a crispy bite and a bit of spice, but, the fun part is eating little potato gnocchi bites that are coated with cheese. This recipe totally reminds me of grown up hamburger helper lol.
