For once, I decided to get a bit creative and not follow a recipe. I had some cooked Farfalle pasta in the freezer and stuff I needed to use in the fridge and I was starving so I got to work. Now, I did not make anything grand or sophisticated. Just a simple dish with simple ingredients. It’s fun when you can add whatever you like and then figure out what else you could have added or need to omit next time. I have not given any quantity of ingredients because you can use however much you choose–it’s up to you. Make it as spicy as you like or not spicy at all. Use as much cilantro, scallions, onions, etc. as your heart desires. Saute after each ingredient, then mix and cook for just a few minutes before you pop it into the oven.
About 1/2 a box of cooked Farfalle pasta [Or any kind of leftover cooked pasta]
1 Sweet pepper, chopped [any kind]
1/2 or 1 Onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, minced or a bunch of ramps, chopped
1/2 a bunch or less of cilantro, chopped [parsley or basil would work too]
1 ear of corn, kernels separated and roasted [or frozen corn]
1 can petite diced tomatoes (I used a can of petite diced tomatoes with green chilies),
2/3 or 3/4 chicken broth or white wine 🙂
4 deli turkey slices, chopped [use ham or chicken if you wish]
A mix of Colby and Monterey Jack, Pepperjack and Monterey Jack Cheese (any kind you have on hand and as much as you like :))
Breadcrumbs (as much as you like)
2-3 tbsp Tomato paste
Hot sauce [any kind and as much as you can handle!]
Remember–you can always play around with the quantity, it is not set in stone!
