But more than that I love turning left-overs into another meal, so we have more left-overs.
Wow! I am breeding food in my kitchen, I'm like a left-over farmer.
In all seriousness though I do like to stretch our food....frugally.
Today we had left-over spaghetti but I knew it wasn't going to be enough for all six of us, that's when I decided to turn it into soup in the crock.
Sound kinda gross to you.....or like a bunch of crock?? :)
It's actually really good!
It's not uncommon to find recipes with pasta in soup, so this is basically the same thing.
The awesome part, this only takes 2 hours in the crock pot!
Crock Pot Left-over Spaghetti Soup
What you will need:
1 can corn
1 can stewed tomatoes
2 cans water
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
2-3 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried onions
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Throw all of the above in your crockpot and cook on High for 2 hours.
My "highly expressive" hubby said it was "Good, real good" ;)
