Has anyone tried myfridgefood? The concept of this website is genius. You enter the foods that you have in your refrigerator and your pantry (from a checklist) and the site generates recipes that you could make out of the food that you already have. I don't know who came up with that idea but it's brilliant. I am going to try it soon and I will blog whatever it tells me to make. If any of you have used myfridgefood, send me a comment and let me know how it worked for you. I heard that there is a similar app for the iPhone - anyone know what it is?
This recipe came from my own version of myfridgefood. I had leftover chicken in my fridge from my bourbon chicken and leftover orchiette pasta from my creamy chicken pasta. I also had some fresh broccoli and a little bit of leftover cheese. This recipe is probably not nearly as creative as the ones on the website but I took all my ingredients and turned them into chicken and broccoli macaroni and cheese.
Chicken and Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese
8 ounces pasta shells (I used whole wheat orchiette.)
1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
3/4 cup skim milk
1 Tablespoon sundried tomato paste
1/4 cup light Velveeta cheese, cubed
2 cooked chicken breasts, diced
1/4 cup bread crumbs
A yummy dinner and I didn't have to make another trip to the grocery store - win win.
