Food waste has become one of my pet peeves of late. I think it's because I'm working less and trying to be more thrifty. It's how I should've been all along.
Anyways, today I made a fantastic pasta out of odds and ends in my fridge! I so love to cook and create.
I took equal parts butter and olive oil and sauteed 1/4 red onion. I added a diced yellow bell pepper and VERY thinly sliced carrot. When this mix was tender I added a large handful of spinach leaves. When the spinach wilted I added some left over whole wheat pasta and another tablespoon of olive oil. To finish it I added a handful of grape tomatoes and some left over black olives, some greek seasoning, sea salt, and black pepper.
After I plated this beautifully colorful pasta, I topped it off with parmesan cheese! I'd post a picture, but I devoured it :) It was so good I had to share!
