New Recipe....

Hello Peeps! 

We have been up to ceiling in leftovers here. So I thought I would try to find a recipe that would use some of them up. I used the recipe on the back of the frozen meatball package as a starting place.  I had a veggie tray left over from a party and the meatballs were a partial package from an appetizer that I made Christmas Eve.

This is how the package recipe went: 
Meatballs + Frozen Vegetables + Pasta + a can of chicken broth = Italian Wedding Soup
Seriously! Like that didn't scream 
"HELP ME! I'm almost a recipe!"
So! That is what I did. I turned it into a recipe.

Bake the meatballs as directed. ( I used the turkey meatballs)
Chop fresh veggie selection ( I used onions, carrots, celery, and some leftover cauliflower)
 Saute in 3 tablespoons of olive oil until tender,  
add a teaspoon of minced garlic. 
add 1 cup of small pasta ( I used Acini di pepe) 
1 tablespoon of Herbs de Provence
Salt and pepper to taste
Simmer until the pasta is done.

And the TA DA! Soups on!

How simple was that!

Fresh Cut Friday is this week. 
I will have the linky tool up tomorrow 
evening so that you can join in. 
Have FUN!

What a clever girl you are! Great use of leftovers. I just bought some meatballs from Ikea. I will have to give this a try. Looks like a wonderful Winter Meal. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
