Faster Pasta – a Super Fast Way to Use Up Leftovers!

This meal, which I call ‘Faster Pasta‘ is not only fast (you can make it in under 12 minutes) – but is also incredibly frugal.  I can feed this to my family of four for only a few dollars!.  Good for making something quick, easy and delicious. Perfect for a weeknight meal.

The basics of the recipe are here, but really, any leftovers you might have in the fridge can be used in this recipe.  It is even cheaper still if you want to make your own Pasta!

TO MAKE THE PASTA IN A PASTA MACHINE:
