Lunchtime Remix: Vegan Chipotle Pasta And Corn Soup

March 24, 2010 by Keri

As you all know, I have a love for leftovers, and today I made lunch entirely out of them!  I took some leftover whole wheat penne and mixed in the “sausage” and veggies from last night’s Mexican Chipotle “Sausage” and Rice.  To top it all off, I used extra marinara from Monday’s Red and White Cauliflower Bake!  Since I had soup that needed to be used as well, I served the vegan pasta up with a side of corn chowder.  The natural sweetness of the corn was a great compliment to the spicy chipotle pasta and took the edge out of the heat.  I know you’re probably thinking I’m nutty for getting so excited about making meals out of entirely leftovers, but I hate to waste food (well, I hate waste in general, but I especially have a soft spot about food for some reason)!  Anyway, I hope you had a great lunch as well!

    Oh wow, I was craving for pasta today and what do you know?? I drop by your blog and see this yummy creation! I’m always amazed at what you can do with leftover food! You’re challenging me to be creative with my own leftovers — but I doubt I can come up with something as yummy as yours!

    I think it’s great that you share your leftover creations with usKeri…you continue to inspire us to be more conscious not only with the food we eat, but to be creative with the food that we leave behind as well! 🙂
