What exactly are leftovers? Leftovers are the uneaten remains of a hot or cold meal after the meal is over and everyone has finished eating.
As a kid what did that mean? It meant a gross dinner was around the corner. 😬 My mom was an excellent cook but even leftover night was a food bust.
Today is Labour Day in Canada or (Holiday Monday) and all the stores are closed. So dinnertime rolled around and I had no idea what to make. So I opened my fridge and grab a ton of leftovers and made a wicked dinner.
Here is what I used:
- 2 cups cooked penne pasta
- 1 bunch of asparagus which I cooked in garlic and oil
- 1/4 onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 smoked Serrano chili ( or a chipotle if that is what you have )
- 2 cobs of corn – kernels cut off
- 3 BBQed Italian sausages sliced
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/3 cup chicken stock
- Splash of whisky
- Salt and pepper
What did I do?
Melt a bit of butter in a pan, add onion and asparagus after a few minutes add garlic and corn. After 1 minutes add chili, sausage and pasta. After 2 minutes add splash of whisky and stock and cream. Simmer 3 minutes and viola. Season with salt and pepper and top with Parmesan.
You won’t believe this is leftovers!
