I rescued it by getting a little creative with the ingredients I found in my fridge. I created a little dish inspired by my mom's "Pasta Al Forno," which is sort of like lasagne. I added some chopped up hard-boiled eggs, pieces of ham, cubes of mozzarella & a bit of grated parmesan... baked at 350 for about 10-15 minutes. And some garlic naan to go with it. An entirely new, and exciting, meal!
I had some leftover taco meat, but no more shells. That inspired this awesome plate of nachos for lunch (which I shared with a friend). I make my nachos this way:
- First, lay down some (low sodium) nachos in a ring shape along the bottom of the plate. Then add some taco meat & cheese on top. Then add another ring of nachos & repeat. Pop in the microwave for a minute or less, just until the cheese gets a little bit melted, but the nachos stay crisp.
Then add sour cream, guac and/or salsa to the middle for dipping... Voila! A beautiful plate of nachos, that were good to the very last bite.
