Wednesday leftovers and a coincidental alignment with tuesday nights dinner.

Tomato and Sausage Pasta

One onion, two cloves of garlic, one red chili all finely chopped and sauteed in EVOO until soft. One leftover cold sausage sliced and then fried a little. Add a handy bottle of tomato puree and let simmer for twenty minutes or so. Season with salt and pepper and a pinch of sugar. Served on spinach boughtellini with grated parmesan.


Spinach and Bread Salad

Croutons: cut leftover crusty bread into cubes, toasted in the oven, and then stir-fried in garlic and olive oil.

Spinach: washed, and washed again, shaken of water and then torn into pieces.

Field Mushrooms: chopped, and left for half and hour to sit in a dressing of EVOO, white vinegar (no lemons on hand), chopped flat leaf parsley, a finely chopped garlic clove, and pepper.

All mixed, a little more dressing of EVOO and balsamic and topped with grated parmesan.

Easy. Good. Leftovers + standbys.

    Hi Anthony,

    Don’t you think that sometimes the easiest dishes to make are the best tasting? Pasta and salad, great combo for a mid-week meal.

    I think I’ll have some tomorrow.

    Hmmm, leftover pasta – my favourite! Problem is, even if you make the most divine dish in the world, it is probably unrepeatable because you need just that particular combo of leftovers in the fridge… Ah well, back to the drawing board.

    The potential downsides are more than covered by excuses and the upsides are pure self serving credit for resourcefulness.

    They also turn our hand away from cookbooks.

    Very kind ladies.
    On a techhy note, the picture of the bread was about 10% of the whole photo which makes me pretty happy with the resolution on the camera.
