let's play, "What's in the fridge?"
-can't take over 30 minutes from start to finish
-must primarily use items in the fridge that need to be "finished off"
-must be easy
-must taste delicious
Wa-Lah! Pasta ala Fridge Leftovers!
-Gluten Free pasta (admittedly not a leftover, but just like good underwear, a girl needs building blocks)
-Some uncooked ground chicken not used in the tacos the other night - about a quarter pound
-Sauteed with leftover homemade turkey stock about 3/4 cup
-Add left over homemade pizza sauce - about 1 cup (make sure it has balsamic vinegar in it :)
-Some cream... there was about 3/4 of a small carton left - to get all the dregs out and add flavor, swish it around with almost a full carton more of leftover white wine
-Keep bubbling this brew and add a tomato (there was one left in the produce drawer)
-Some left over grilled zucchini, chop it up
-Lots of fresh garlic
-A generous amount of salt
-Drain your pasta and pour into the sauce
Put into bowls and top with some cheese if you have it, red pepper flakes and fresh ground pepper...
