Empty the Fridge Pasta


pastaI need to go grocery shopping but tend to put if off until I absolutely have NO food.  And that’s basically where I was this weekend (going to the store today).  I had a few things in the fridge that were close to being on their last leg . . . . some red bell pepper, 1/2 an avocado, red onion, baby kale, a couple pieces of bacon and some yellow cherub tomatoes.  So I thought to myself . . . why not make some pasta and throw all that stuff in it.  Once my mini bow tie pasta was cooked I drained it and added a bit of olive oil, butter and the juice of 1/2 a lemon.  Then I added the baby kale and just let the heat of the pasta wilt it a bit.  I had already chopped up everything else while the pasta was cooking so I added it all once the kale was wilted.  Stirred it all up, poured it in my bowl & topped it with some pine nuts (because everything tastes better with pine nuts!).  Salt & pepper.  I have to say it was pretty yummy!

I did notice after I took this picture that I think I need a “cute” bowl for salad/pasta pics.  Looks like a trip to Home Goods is in my future!! Yessssssss
