C.O.R.N. PASTA ALFREDO
C.O.R.N. (clean out refrigerator night) Pasta Alfredo can be made with whatever you have, but I especially liked this combination for its unique flavor.

1 cup snap peas, washed & trimmed
1 cup grape tomatoes, washed & halved
1 large bunch green onions, sliced
2 leftover very small baked potatoes

1 lemon
1 orange
Prepared Pasta
  • In a large skillet melt butter.
  • Saute' onions, green beans and snap peas over a medium heat. Generously salt and pepper while sauteing the vegetables.
  • Juice lemon and orange.
  • When vegetables are just tender, add lemon and orange juice. Simmer while you prepare the Alfredo sauce and pasta.
  • When sauce and pasta are both ready, add the sauce to the vegetable mixture and blend in.
  • Toss with prepared pasta and serve.
  • Serves 4.
