Good afternoon! I hope everyone had a great day. Last night I was trying to think of something to make for lunch with the leftovers in my fridge. I spied some leftover Alfredo noodles and a bunch of veggies.
So I prepped the veggies and sauteed them in a couple tablespoons of olive oil with plenty of salt and pepper.
I started cooking 1 onion-chopped, 2 carrots- sliced, 3 stalks of celery-sliced, and 1/2 container of sliced mushrooms, about 15 minutes. Then I added some cooked shelled edamame and 2 handfuls of spinach to warm the peas and wilt the spinach, about 5 minutes. Last, I added in the pasta (already cooked with the Alfredo Sauce- or use jarred if you have it).
Homemade Alfredo Sauce
1 stick butter
1 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups freshly grated Parmesan
Pasta cooking water, as needed
In a saucepan or skillet, warm the butter and cream. Season with salt and pepper. Add the Parmesan and stir until melted. Toss to combine, thinning with pasta water if needed.
If it needs more sauce, you can add more heavy cream, butter and Parm. Or even a little olive oil will do.

no meat recipes
I was a vegetarian for 13 years and a vegan for 3 years. I love tofu! I have some vegetarian recipes when I cook for just me or the kids, but dinner with the whole family usually has a meat. Sometimes I will add a veggie option, like my lasagna. =)
