Pasta and Wine!

Got all these products at Trader Joe’s and came up with a simple quick dinner yet a classic. Turkey meat sauce with whole wheat penne pasta.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 pint small, sweet cherry tomatoes
2 shallots, chopped
4 cloves garlic
1 jar of prepared tomato sauce
2 table spoon shredded parmesan cheese
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
hot red pepper flakes and/or cayenne to taste
1 pound penne pasta

accompanied with a spring mix salad.

The BF picked this Yalumba shiraz  at Trader Joe’s to go along with our pasta dish. I’m not much a drinker but I definitely enjoy a nice glass of wine. This wine is an easy drinking and great table wine.  Pretty Straight forward.  Something that you can appreciate the very moment you open and enter your mouth. Soft and wild berries taste with a hint of cinnamon. Take some time to smell the fragrant and leave it in your mouth and slowly swallowing it while letting the palate take over your tongue. It was great and Trader Joe’s has a great deal on wines. This was right at $12. #Winner! Pasta and wine is a combination made in heaven!

BTW: I have a week of “normal” healthy eating before i start the complete clean eating for the Bikini prep. So Enjoying it!
