Brussel Sprout & Basil Bow Ties

Recipe Ingredients

Pasta is a quick, tasty way  to stretch  a hotchpotch of leftovers into a weeks worth of meals. Made a little too much macaroni last night? That's no problem the microwave can't solve. Nuke it (covered with plastic wrap) with a splash of water until warm . Shapes, like these tasty  bow ties, reheat better than strands like spaghetti, which can clump. Toss with pesto, veggies and chicken for a perfect (cheap!) next-day lunch.
