Leftover meat- chicken, beef, pork, whatever!
Leftover pasta or rice – flavored or plain!
Minced garlic (and onions if you’re into that)
Your fave fresh veggies – mine are green beans, zucchini, and tomatoes
- I heat up my oil in a skillet to med-high heat, add in my heaping scoop of minced garlic (and onions) and let them cook.
- I then add my green beans and some water to cook them a little extra by boiling the water down. (I don’t like my green beans too crunchy)
- Once the water cooks down, I throw in my zucchini and let it get cooked, you can tell when it just begins to get softened. I don’t like overcooked zucchini so this is a quick toss, mix, and move on.
- Finally, I add my quartered grape tomatoes, diced meat and noodles, just to warm them up.
My fave meats to use are leftover roast beef and once, I used leftover Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken(removed breading), it was AMAZING! The popper stuffing added a great flavor to the entire dish. Depending on what kind/how much meat/pasta you use it ends up about 400-500 calories. You can always leave them out and have a super low cal, but filling lunch!
Make your own and see just how easy it really is! It’s rewarding on so many levels- fresh veggies, cleaning out the fridge AND just plain ole good!! Let me know your fave combos. 🙂
