More Creative Leftovers

I've been trying to think of ideas all day for using up my container full of leftover whole wheat spaghetti noodles that I told you about yesterday. Since we just ate Spaghetti on Friday night, I wanted something different. Finally, I came up with this creation:

Italian Chicken and Pasta Skillet Dinner

Saute some chopped onion, chopped green pepper and minced garlic in olive oil.
Stir in 2 cans of diced tomatoes. (I used some DelMonte diced tomatoes with green pepper and onion that I had recently purchased B1G1F.)
Add chopped, cooked chicken and cooked spaghetti noodles (or other pasta).
Add a little Italian seasoning.
Simmer on low while you make a tossed salad.
Right before serving, stir in some grated Parmesan or Italian 5 cheese (optional).

Here is a picture of my delicious creation:

This was really incredibly yummy!!! I think I might even make it again some time! This recipe illustrates the fact that Necessity is the mother of Creativity.

I'd love to hear about some tasty Creations you've made for your family.
