Refrigerator Pasta
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
22 ingredients
4-6 servings
Every few weeks I have to purge my refrigerator and find a use for the fresh vegetables I didn't use all of in previous dishes. This particular dish and it's subsequent ingredients vary dependent on what I have in the refrigerator and what protein strikes my fancy that day, but the end result is always the same, delicious! Essentially, everything listed as an ingredient besides those used in the sauce can be substituted for what you have in the refrigerator or freezer. Just remember, color and texture and let your imagination run free!
