Mustgo Pasta Salad

Every week we have a dish made from small amounts of left overs from other meals during the week. This past week we had B-B-Q chicken, tacos, a goulash pasta dish, and smoked pulled pork sandwiches. And like always, we had some leftovers… So today, I made what I call “mustgo pasta salad.


I had a half of bag of pasta left over from the goulash dish so I cooked that. While the pasta was cooking, I chopped up a half of a green bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, and green olives that were left over from a salad earlier in the week. I also had some black olives, and green onions left over from taco night, so I chopped them up as well. I put everything into a large mixing bowl and added some left over smoked pulled pork and a left over B-B-Q chicken breast that I pulled off the bone and cubed.  I added some frozen corn, and two Weight Watcher smoked string cheese sticks that I cubed. I mixed in some light Mayo and some fat-free Italian dressing (just enough to coat all the ingredients). Seasoned with coarse black pepper to taste, covered with plastic wrap, and set it in the refrigerator to allow all the flavors to blend and the smoke from the pulled pork and smoked cheese to seep into the dish lending that smoke flavor to all the other ingredients.

When it’s dinner time, I will simply add some crusty bread and call it good… The best part about this, is dinner has been ready and in the refrigerator since 10:30 this morning, leaving me plenty of time to get the laundry done, make this post, and we don’t have any more left overs! Sounds like a win/win deal to me… 🙂

Stay Tuned!

    My kind of meal especially since it is a meal using things that have already been cooked. Thanks for sharing.
