Pesto Pasta with Corn and Pine Nuts

Hey kids! Hope you had a great Monday! My day was pretty awesome, and tonight is pretty chill at home. We had burger night; everyone gobbled up their burgers. I have made burgers a few times here on the blog, so I hope you check it out. This is how I made them…https://funfoodiefamily.com/2013/08/28/burgers-2/

As I was making dinner, I was thinking about what to take for lunch tomorrow. I am pretty good about taking my lunch to work, but sometimes I end up buying the school lunch. It is not bad, but I don’t like to take my chances. On the days I don’t bring my lunch, the salad bar is usually a safe bet. There is even the occasional gem like chicken wings or mozzarella sticks.

I was looking through the fridge and decided to make a pasta mash up. Basically, I took a bunch of ingredients that were separate and added them all together. In this case it was some leftover Annie’s mac and cheese, corn, leftover pesto, and pine nuts from said pesto. I have just enough for 2 servings…one for me and one for my lunch mate. We usually take turns making food for each other. Today she brought spicy tofu and veggies with coconut milk and noodles. It was delish!

This combo turned out really great! I hope you feel inspired to take a look at what you already have in your fridge or pantry and make it work!
