What's for Lunch - Wed., 1/19

Barilla Plus Rotini with Meatballs or Marinara
Fresh Garlic Bread
Zucchini Sticks
Strawberry/Yogurt Smoothie

The rotini is a white flour pasta with some protein by Barilla Plus. The ingredients are:  Semolina, Grain and Legume Flour, Blend (Lentils, Chickpeas, Egg Whites, Spelt, Barley, Flaxseed, Oat Fiber, Oats), Durum Flour, Niacin, Iron (Ferrous Sulfate), Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid.

Meatballs are ground chuck.

The sauce is a Red Pack vitamin enhanced tomato sauce. The sodium at 140mg is much lower than we previously used.  Here are the ingredients: Tomato Concentrate (Water, Tomato Paste), Sugar, Soybean Oil, Potassium Chloride, Onion Powder, Salt, Citric Acid, Spice, Garlic Powder, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Black Pepper, Vitamin E (DL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate), Natural Flavor, Vitamin A (Retinol Palmitate).

The zucchini is fresh.

The smoothie will be made with either plain yogurt to which we add  honey or vanilla yogurt (no honey) if we can't get plain plus 1% milk and frozen strawberries.

This week's soup: Minestrone - homemade!

Plus, the alternate entree for January is a 1/2 wrap with the soup and sides. The wrap changes each day. Wednesdays are fresh breaded chicken cutlet. All wraps have romaine lettuce and a white flour tortilla.  We make these chicken cutlets ourselves -- marinated in yogurt, spices, panko and corn meal.
