Leftover Dinner Mess

After last nights awesome roast beef dinner, I had to come up with something to do with the leftovers. I have plans for the roast beef, tomorrow night it will be turned into some sort of beef stroganoff!

Tonight I made a pasta dish with the left over broccolini and sweet potato.

The pasta water was put in, and in the meantime; I cut up and lightly sauteed the left over sweet potato, and set it aside. I had a chicken sausage in the fridge which I sliced up and put in the pan to warm up; I also tossed in some pepperoni for a little bit of spice.

The pasta went into the salted boiling water, and I started on the cream sauce. A little butter, a little olive oil, and some flour started off a roux. I added a bit of 2% milk, so it wasn’t completely unhealthy, a generous amount of salt, pepper, and garlic and herb seasoning.

When the cream sauce got thick, I dumped the chopped broccolini in with the pasta to heat it through. After draining the pasta, I mixed everything together and was more than pleasantly surprised at how good the dish tasted.

I called it leftover dinner mess because it looked like a big mess in a bowl!

  1. I think I’ll have to start calling you Hannah ‘Ray.’ I also like how you left a teaser about tomorrow night’s stroganoff too. Very clever blogging my dear. 😉I am a member of a weekly CSA and have been finding myself mowing down on vegetables like crazy! You keep inspiring me to get creative. I’ve mostly been roasting and steaming.

  2. hehe, i am trying to get the hang of it, as well as trying to blog each day. nothing wrong with roasted and steamed vegetables, thats what mine started as 🙂I am really looking forward to the farmers market starting up, and we already have a bunch of seeds started and we’ll hopefully get them into the ground in the next few weeks!!!
