I call this leftover pasta because the ingredients depend on what is in my fridge. I use the lemon butter sauce below and just change up the ingredients according to what I have on hand.
So, I had a bag of spinach, cherry tomatoes and some smoked chicken (Thanks Robyn!) for this one. Then I just made the sauce, and used some precooked pasta from my Provisions Prep Day this week.
Here it is…
2 T olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
4-5 pats of butter
1 lemon juiced, or 3 T
1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
Saute garlic in olive oil on med, then add wine/broth and the lemon juice. Let it simmer for about 3-4 minutes. Add pats of butter to melt.
Put in your add-ins like chicken, spinach and other vegetables. Cook until warm. Add pasta and toss.
Serve with fresh parmesan cheese and garlic bread!
