I have a serious issue with wasting food. If there is a scrap or two on Wyatt or Kerry’s plate, then I will shove it in my mouth no matter how full I am. So, when it comes to leftovers I tend to always find a way to craft them into a new meal. Though the rest of the family may not always agree with my concoctions, in this instance everyone loved the Kale Pesto Meatball Subs!
Earlier in the week Kerry came up with a delicious and healthy kale pesto. It was amazing on pasta, and there was a full jar of it left over. I took the pesto, and reworked it into delicious chicken meatballs, along with using it as a condiment on the buns. Once Wyatt got past that fact that his meatballs were green and not brown, he gobbled them up.
One other idea I had for the pesto was tossing some steamed broccoli in it… but that didn’t seem to warrant a full post. If you’ve tried some different ideas with your leftover pesto please let us know!
