protein-packed pasta

i posted this to inspire you to use up those leftovers and get creative in the kitchen! out with traditional meals and in with cooking out of the box!

this is made with the extra chick peas and sauce from our thai chick-un pizza. just added peas and mushrooms and topped with the same greens. it's a great feeling to create your own meal with that leftover food in the fridge instead of throwing it out!

what are some creative ways you've used leftovers?

  1. anyone? anyone?

    ok, i'll share. a few months ago john's sister sent him home with some leftover risotto she made him when he first cut out the meat (wasn't that so sweet of her?) the next day i mashed it up with some roasted red pepper hummus i had made a few days prior, some rolled oats, chopped red pepper, formed them into patties, and made the best veggie burgers i have ever tasted. really, i even put them on toasted bread and they were still better than any i've ever had.

    goes to show that sometimes the most satisfying meals are the ones you throw together last minute with what you've got!
