A lot refrigerators are packed with leftovers. While a lot of us hate to let food go unused, the only option is to reuse food we didn't eat a few days previous and prepare dinner out of leftovers. While leftovers were once a tasty meal, sadly, to many family members they are no longer appetizing. However, with just a few tricks, you can cook flavorful meals yet again merely by utilizing leftovers. Following are some options.

Mix Your Leftover Meat Dishes with Fresh Pasta
One way to overhaul a great meal from your leftovers is to mix it with fresh ingredients. In this example, pasta works well with lots of different beef and chicken dishes. Use thin spaghetti, wide noodles, wagon wheels, spirals, you name it with your meat leftovers. Add gravy, ketchup, tomato sauce or even chili to spice up and old dish.

Vegetable Dishes with Rice- Twice as Nice
If you have leftover vegetable dishes that you would like to reuse, one of the best ways to do so is to prepare it with rice. Whether you choose white or brown rice, you can cook an awesome vegetable dish and make it into an entirely new meal. Usually with vegetables, you have little opportunity to reuse them as leftover before they become limp. Try to keep them crisp and fresh.

Create Soups with Leftovers
If you are stuck with a few meals in your refrigerator and you donít know how to use them, you can generally toss them into a pot and make delicious soup. No matter if it is chicken, turkey, hamburger meat or beef, creating savory soup out of leftovers is sensible and also is quite tasty.

Making soups using leftover is extremely painless. You can pretty much throw in any sliced meat and chopped vegetable into some broth or cream to make a great tasting soup. Even old bread can be useful.

Use Leftover Fruit for Fruit Smoothies
Generally, most houses will find a couple leftover apples, oranges or bananas in their refrigerator. While the odd piece of fruit is not generally a leftover, practically all fruit can be utilized to make delicious fruit smoothies. Fruit smoothies are easily prepared with some milk, yogurt, fruit and a blender. Not only are they healthy, but ideal for a snack or even breakfast. Fruit smoothies are perfect for leftover fruit or even slightly over ripen fruit. Mixed with several other ingredients, they still taste great and wonít go wasted.

The next time you search deep into your refrigerator and see all the meals from the past week, donít worry, utilize them to prepare new meals, soups and even yummy desserts.
