4 c. leftover pulled pork

2 packs Buotoni fettuccine

1 bag frozen broccoli florets

1 jar alfredo sauce

Cook fettuccine according to package directions

Heat leftover pork in skillet.

Microwave broccoli and toss with pork.

Stir in sauce and toss with noodles.

I felt lazy tonight and was glad to have all the ingredients on hand to throw this together.  Nice and yummy and easy to make.




I have the best way of cooking beer bratwurst ever.  I discovered it about ten years ago while cooking by candlelight after Hurricane Wilma.  We had gas and could therefore cook, but no electricity.

Brown beer bratwurst in olive oil over medium heat until browned on all sides.  Pour in beer to about an inch in the skillet.  Cover and simmer until internal temperature is 165 F or more.  You can keep this warm on low for hours, or in a crock pot.

I had leftover broccoli quinoa salad that wasn’t getting eaten.  I freshened it up with some garbanzo beans, some leftover cabbage coleslaw and sweet thai chili sauce.  The second go round was really yummy.  Much better than the first version.


1 package broccoli slaw

2-3 c. cooked quinoa

1 c. coleslaw dressing

Mix broccoli slaw, quinoa and coleslaw dressing.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

I served this with veggie burgers with Kraft Hot Habinero cheese on a whole wheat bun for Meatless Monday!


2 lb. pasta

2 jars Ragu double cheddar sauce

1 lb. cubed ham

1 package broccoli florets, steamed

8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Cook pasta according to directions.

Mix with sauce and cooked broccoli.

Pour half into prepared lasagne dish.


Layer ham over noodles.


Layer remaining noodles over ham.

Sprinkle with shredded cheese.


Bake 350 for 25 minutes.

If you love broccoli with cheese sauce, this is for you!

Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli and Rice Casserole (Adapted from Simpledailyrecipes.com)

4 c. cooked rice
3 c. shredded colby jack cheese
2 c. milk
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
3 c. steamed chopped broccoli
4 c. chopped leftover chicken

Mix everything together in a bowl, reserving 1 c. of cheese for topping.

Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 350 F. for 35 minutes.

I used the leftover “fried” chicken.

This was a huge hit, and a good way to use leftovers.

Any meat could be used. Any vegetable could be used. You could also use millet or quinoa. You could easily add in onions, mushrooms, garlic, etc. to change the flavors up a bit. Brown rice would be healthier. Jarred cheese sauce would work (but not be healthier!) I can’t wait to try variations with the millet and quinoa. We are trying to go back to healthier eating at least a couple of times a week!
