Better-The-Second-Time-Around Creamy Pasta

Thinking about tossing that leftover pasta from the Italian restaraunt? Reckon again. Here’s how you can turn a tired ancient to-go box into a hearty meal that’s even better the second time around.


Leftover pasta
Your choice of cured, salted meat (optional)
2 or 3 cloves garlic, chopped
Olive oil
Milk, light cream or Half ‘n Half
Garlic salt
Parmesan cheese
Cooking wine (white or sherry)
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Drizzle some olive oil into a large frying pan with a pat of butter and the garlic. Add a few small pieces of whatever cured salted meat you might have handy such as bacon, ham, salami, prosciutto. If you don’t have any cured meat in the house, no huge deal. Sautee on low to medium heat until garlic is golden around the edges.

Next add the leftover pasta, a few splashes of the milk or cream, and a glug or two of the cooking wine. Stir vigorously and bring to a low boil. Add a few shakes of garlic salt, a few generous pinches of Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Keep stirring until mixture thickens. Taste test for desired spiciness and to be sure the wine has cooked off.

Remove from stove and sprinkle with a small of the fresh parsley. Serve with garlic bread and a tossed salad. So excellent… you’ll forget it was leftover!
