There are some days when I scan the contents of my refrigerator and try to put together the leftovers I see. It's quite challenging to combine odd ingredients, because it requires a tad more imagination than cooking straight from a cookbook. But when I hit a jackpot, I make sure the recipe will be for keeps, because leftovers often stare back at me in the refrigerator.
Meat sauce — or ragù, as we call it at home — is a big favorite of my kids. I always have leftover sauce, because with kids, sometimes it's the only thing they eat, and at other times, they refuse to touch it. So instead of always cooking pasta with the leftover sauce, I modify the way I serve it. Believe it or not, my kids wipe out these fajitas as quickly as I prepare them.
Born out of my leftover spaghetti meat sauce and open package of feta cheese, this twist on fajitas made quite an impact at the table.
