Lately I'm all about quick meals and using up stuff in my fridge. I made lasagna for my parents when they were visiting and I pretty much always make more noodles than I end up using, so I thought I'd get creative last night in using up the extra noodles.
I decided to make a simple sauce out of sauteed spinach, garlic, and tomato (in a little olive oil).
Mixed with some cottage cheese in the food processor to give it the creamy, cheesy factor.
Then I cut up my cooked lasagna noodles into bite sized pieces, poured on my sauce, and added a little fresh Parmesan cheese. I popped it in the microwave just to warm up the noodles and make sure the sauce was warm all the way through.
Easy, tasty, and healthy too. A great use for leftover pasta!
I spent the rest of the evening chilling with Clyde playing about 2,000 rounds of fetch...
while watching this crazy movie...
In case you can't see my picture very well, I watched 127 Hours, which is the film about Aron Ralston, the guy who had to cut his arm off to free it from a boulder that fell on his arm while hiking in Utah. The movie really made me think about whether I could do that or not and I definitely cringed during THE scene.
I also had a bowl of cookies and cream (Breyers) ice cream with some fresh cherries on top later as a movie snack.
Kind of like Cherry Garcia. Yum!
