Fridays my friend and producer, Noelle and I work all day on filming, editing, concept, etc. Typically I always have something quick planned to whip up for brunch, lunch or for whenever we get hungry. I like to do something creative like a frittata or my twist on a BLT- prosciutto, pears and spring lettuce.
Yesterday, however- nothing. I had nothing. I hadn’t even gone grocery shopping for the week. So, when I saw she might be getting hungry and we still had so much work ahead of us, I leaped into action.
I had no ideas, so I just looked in the refrigerator- a half bag of baby spinach. Less than half of a roasted chicken. What could I do with this? Then it came to me.
I boiled some farfalle pasta, sauteed the spinach and shredded chicken and even found some bell pepper to throw in. It looked like it needed something red but I didn’t have any red bell pepper; but I did find a half empty bag of sundried tomatoes. After throwing some alfredo pasta sauce on it and a little Parmesan, voila! Leftover lunch- and it tasted anything but.Email this to a Friend
