I love to cook. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of time for it. So, I’m always on the look out for “double duty” meals. Things that I can cook once and serve twice.
The other night, I made Pasta Primavera (basically, spaghetti topped with sauteed veggies). The leftover zucchini, red onion, grape tomatoes, eggplant, and spinach went into omelettes for breakfast the next day and they were yummy!
Getting creative with leftovers makes it feel like you aren’t eating leftovers. The trick is to make the first night’s meal as generic as possible and using the leftovers to accent a totally new meal. If your house is anything like mine, there usually aren’t enough leftovers to serve the same thing again and getting creative is the only option.
