Late last week I roasted a chicken, along with some veggies tucked underneath (onion, carrots and fennel). In a separate pan I roasted some of my freshly dug up russian fingerling potatoes from the garden - along with some thyme and garlic. It all turned out really good!
Since then I cooked up some of those frozen tortellini pasta with leftover spaghettie sauce one nite. Last nite I took the remaining tortellini (unsauced), re-boiled them briefly (better than just nuking them), added in the last of the white meat from the roasted chicken, and added homemade pesto from the freezer, lemon juice, olive oil and some crushed red pepper - turned out great!
