This Leftover Shredded Roast Beef Pasta is a quick and delicious dinner, made with your leftover beef, broccoli, parmesan cheese, and favorite type of pasta.
How’s your week going so far? Hard to believe we’ve made it to the first week of September! Time is really flying. I’m really excited to share today’s new recipe with you because I feel like it’s the perfect blend of summer and fall. It’s packed with fresh broccoli and cheese. It’s tossed with extra-virgin olive oil and yet, it has a little bit of the fall flavor because of the leftover shredded roast beef. At least for me, everything roasted reminds me fall and winter season.
This shredded roast beef pasta is all about quick, easy, and healthy. Since this time of the year is super busy for almost all of us, having meals we can whip up in minutes is really good and also makes life easier.
This new recipe is for those of you that don’t know what to do with your leftover roast beef, chicken, turkey, pork, or lamb. There is nothing worse than wasting food so every time I have meat leftovers, I try to add them at the end of my recipe. Recently I made this Whole30 Pot Roast Recipe and had so much leftovers. I love to add leftover roast meat in soups, stews, pasta, and salad because it adds more flavor to the recipe from its cooking juices. Mmmmm… yummy!
This simple and quick recipe makes for a great, complete, and filling lunchbox meal, including your veggies, carbs, and protein. For the pasta, it doesn’t really matter which one you would like to us. What matters is if it is whole wheat because it will add more nutrients to your meal. This time I used farfalle pasta, commonly known as “bow-tie” pasta, but you can use your preferred type of pasta. For a side, I made this Easy Broccoli Salad Recipe in only a couple of minutes. Hope you enjoy it!
