I'm becoming my mother more and more every day. She's a master at mixing leftovers and making a delicious meal.
We now have two kids and need to be more frugal than ever. I've been making meals with pantry leftovers and last nights was a hit!
Have some left over ham from the holidays? What about those half full boxes of pasta in the cabinet? Got some cream of whatever soup in your pantry? Throw it together and voila! Creamy, delicious, winter night comfort food. And fast too!
Here's what you need:
2 cups Cooked Ham
2 cups Pasta
2 cans cream of whatever soup (I used mushroom but celery would probably be delicious too)
2 cups of milk
1/4 cup grated parmesan
fresh cracked black pepper to taste
Here's what I did:
Chopped up the left over ham in bite sized pieces (I'm saving the bone for split pea soup- yum!)
Cooked the half full boxes of small shell pasta and eggs noodles
Mixed them together in a casserole dish with two cans of cream of mushroom soup and one can of milk.
Sprinkled the grated parmesan on top
Seasoned with pepper
Baked in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes until bubbling.
I should've gotten a before pic but here is this morning's after. My husband had a bowl for breakfast!
