Whatever’s In the Fridge Pasta

Whatever's In the Fridge Pasta

So we had a lot of food leftover from the wedding luncheon and reception too so I boiled up a box of pasta and then just started adding whatever was in the fridge to it and it came out pretty good!  I only got one bowl as Bob and Zach ate all the rest so it must have been tasty.  I wasn’t too careful about keeping track of what I did so I’ll try to recreate here, it’ll be close.

juice of 1 lemon

1/2 cup olive oil

4 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1 (16 oz) box your choice of pasta (I used tri-color rotini)

about 2 cups broccoli florets

about 1 cup sugar snap peas

about 1 cup cherry/grape tomatoes, cut in half lengthwise

1  Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil and vinegar in small bowl.

2  Boil pasta according to package directions.  During the last 2 – 3 minutes of boiling time add broccoli and peas (or whatever veggies happen to be in your fridge).

3  Drain pasta/veggies.  Carefully stir in tomatoes then toss with dressing.

Can be served hot or cold.
