I was reading and posting about the smoked mackerel and then read about pasta, shrimp and strawberries and I decided it was time to see what I could find in the 'fridge.
Now I often use leftovers in what Mrs Hoot says are "weird" combinations, to put it politely. Some turn out good, others not so much.
In the 'fridge I find some leftover tossed salad, and some pasta from last night's dinner. (We were expecting a crowd...but we ended up with a crowd of one guest. So we have some extra stuff left over.)
I sautéed some of the tossed salad (lettuce, tomato wedges and onions) in some olive oil....
Added some chipotle powder, a few drops of fish sauce, a generous amount of cayenne hot sauce.Threw in some of the pasta and a little feta cheese, for good measure. Stirred it around for a few minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. And it turned out mighty good!
Mrs Hoot just looked at me sideways, like she does from time to time and said, "It's a wonder your stomach doesn't stage a revolt!"
