I cooked some minced garlic and red chili peppers in about a tablespoon of olive oil. I had about a quarter of an 8x8 tray of lasagna leftover as well as a bit of potato left from scooping it out for potato skins. I threw them together in the food processor with a half of a can of diced tomatoes until they were blended into a thick...well...goop. Then I added that to the pot with the garlic and peppers and the rest of the diced tomatoes and poured in a can of chicken broth. I didn't feel like it had enough tomato, so I added in a small can of tomato sauce. I also added a bit of white wine...why not? I seasoned it with oregano, parsley, salt, and red and black pepper and cooked it on medium until it was heated through.
I was a little nervous about feeding it to D. After all, it was a little weird. It tasted pretty good though, so I served it up with some mixed veggies and garlic bread. He said it was good, so I think it was a successful dish. He isn't usually one to hide the truth when he doesn't like something I make.
Experimenting in the kitchen is fun. :) I had the leftovers today for lunch with a big delicious salad. It totally it the spot.
