Lasagna from Leftoversgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread
Well, I have just discovered this really fun (?!) lasagna! ;)
The "meaty" part consists of whatever sauce, meat, veggies I have leftover from the week.
And then the cheesy part consists of whatever yogurt, milk, cream/ricotta/mozz. cheese I have leftover from the week.
Last night was spinach/carrot/cawliflower/mushroom/tomato/garlic with cream cheese/ricotta cheese/mozzarella cheese/parmesan cheese/evaporated milk mixture.
It's yummy & saves me money, time and effort.
Anybody else have any "leftover" recipes they can share??

i have one the kids really like. Its called " Tin CUp soup". I take any leftover vegies from the week, and save them, even if its only a tblsp or so. I save the juice for this too. I take 2 cups leftover meat, and 8 cups of vegies, one onion, 2 tblsp kitchen bouquet, and 1 tblsp of my homeade beef boullion, add all this to a big pot and simmer till done. I sometimes add barley,( my fav ). Course you have to eat it with homeade crackers and in real Tin cups. LOL

Thats sound great, Heather, I'm always looking for those kinds of recipes.
Some things I do are- Fill a casserole dish with meat/vegtable leftovers chopped, and add a biscuit dough, and bake for a pot pie. Litte bit of meat and veggies go into fried rice If I have just a little bit of tomato sauce, tomato soup, etc left I put it in a container and freeze it. I keep adding to it til I have a full container then I thaw it and serve it over noodles or speghetti. Its amazing how fast a spoonful here, and half cup there adds up! and of course, small amount of leftover veggtable go into a freezer container until I get enough for soup.
