Ways with Leftovers

My family loves this quick easy meal, made from leftovers. You can be creative & tweak this dish a million ways. Just sharing this idea, when I have leftover chicken, I shred it, cook it in olive oil with garlic, salt & pepper, a little chicken broth & put over pasta with some freshly grated parmesan cheese. I made in a separate pan the same thing (garlic, salt pepper, broth) with broccoli and/or cauliflower. You can make together, but half my family doesn't eat vegetables & the other half are vegetarians. I know!!!!

Here's the chicken Pasta:

You can also make this meal with sausages. They sell all kinds of awesome sausages, chicken sausages with peppers or apples, tomato, basil sausage etc. You can keep in freezer for another night you need a quick meal everyone loves. It's best when you deglaze the pan the sausage cooks in with some broth & toss the pasta right with sausage to get full flavor. Here's a pic of that cooking also:

Here's the broccoli/cauliflower mix over pasta. I added some butter beans too! YUM! My daughter & I love this & how healthy? I love eating this with sriracha sauce!

Here's the garlic broccoli mix over whole wheat spaghetti. I served it with a salad made out of butter lettuce, goat cheese, sundried tomatoes & croutons. YUM! Toss a garlic bread in the oven & dinners on. QUICK dinner! Hope you enjoy these different ideas for leftovers to please every palate!

You could also mix the sausage & chicken or use different vegetables that are your preference. I've also used leftover pork. Enjoy ~
