Veggie Noodle Bowl

Hey guys! Tonight was another girls’ might for me and my girls. E wanted cheese ravioli, R and K wanted spaghettios, and I wanted to try to clean out the fridge a bit and have something with lots of veggies. I decided to make a noodle soup with some leftover veggies and a pork chop left over from last night. This was pretty simple to throw together in one pot.

I started by chopping up my veggies and cooking them in a bit of olive oil for a few minutes. I used 4 cloves of garlic minced, a few sliced of ginger minced, 10 mushrooms sliced, 1/2 onion chopped, peppers chopped, and broccoli florets. Then I added a quart of beef broth (you could use chicken, veggie, or even water if you want.) Then I added my pasta. I had 1/4 of a container of fettichini noodles left over, so I threw them in the pot. Then I added about 1/2 bottle of white wine-enough to cover the rest of the noodles- a few shakes of sesame oil , teriyaki sauce, and soy sauce. Then I let it come to a boil and cook until the pasta is done. Near the end, I added a few bunches of some spring mix lettuce. Once the pasta was finished and the lettuce was wilted, I added my leftover pork which I sliced up and dropped in the hot broth to warm it through. It was so good! You could use any veggies you have leftover in the fridge, any leftover meat, or even shrimp would be fantastic in this. This is a great meal that you can throw together quickly on a busy weeknight.
