| leftover [failed, bland, unappetizing] mac and cheese that would rather die than get pushed into the microwave | crushed garlic | milk (i used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, believe it or not, since that’s all i had in my fridge!) | sundried tomatoes | spinach | dijon mustard | parmesan cheese (especially if you have like only 1.5 useless tbsp left over) |
start with the garlic. let it heat on the stove and get all warm and fragrant and stuff. add all other ingredients except for the leftover mac and cheese, and stir it all up so that it creates a creamy and slightly cheesy pasta sauce. once the sauce is almost bubbling, add the leftover mac and cheese. add the fresh spinach last. fresh ground salt and pepper to taste. mix it all up and enjoy! it’s like a delicious sundried tomato-and-spinach-alfredo-y pasta. the kind that usually comes with blackened chicken, but we don’t need that in this case because the dark green wilted spinach + sundried tomatoes are enough.
i would have included a picture but it was just too delicious and i kept eating as i thought to myself, “why can’t i stop?!” i could not stop, so no picture.
” for every failed recipe there is an intuitive transformation waiting to happen. it will be tasty. “
