I’m a huge fan of revamping and remixing leftovers into new dishes, it saves money, saves time time, and makes my life oh-so-easy when I don’t have to start from scratch with every single dish I make. You can expect to see this little Leftover Schmeftover installment quite frequently on the bloggie so I hope you like it! There’s only one rule — No boring leftovers! Ever! =)
Love Your Leftovers: Spotlight Spinach!
Let me know if you want step by step photos and I’ll get my butt back in the kitchen =)
Stuffed Chicken or Chicken Roll-ups T-rex chefs will be all over this one! Stuff or roll spinach dip into raw chicken breasts and bake/grill to perfection.
Pizza! Yes, spinach artichoke pizza! Do it. Especially on mini whole grain pitas. Especially with roasted red pepper hummus. I’ll be making these all weekend long. You can also use thin crust dough, whole grain english muffins, french bread, or even bagel thins for all your pizza needs. *drool*
Pahhh-sta! Pasta even =) Pretty much any and every combo you can imagine. Add it to stuffed shells, swirl it into confetti mac and cheese, and even make a shrimp pesto pasta bowl with a medley of veggies for good measure. It’s also ridiculously yummy on/in veggie lasagna!
I’m tapping out. The possibilities are clearly endless for this stuff! And the best part? No one will know they’re made with leftovers! That leftover snob in your family? I won’t tell them if you won’t! =)
