Those dumplings were super tasty. But, I’ll be honest, I just didn’t want to make 60 of them. Especially when I realized I forgot the store-bought wraps and had to make my own (or go to the store with two kids by myself, no thanks).
So, I had a bit of leftover filling, and today is leftovers day. A sign, right? I thought so. So I’m making Vegan Dumpling Pasta! I know it’s going to be just as delicious and like, way less work. Winner, right?
1 C Dumpling filling
1/2 pound pasta, cooked
Olive oil, to taste
Throw all ingredients in pan. Mix and heat through. Eat. Drool.
So good. I miss a little bit of the crispiness of the dumplings (the little pan-fried bottoms). But the chewy pasta and spicy meat…yum. I love it. It’s definitely a quick and easy use of the leftover filling for lazy, ahem, I mean, busy, moms.
Project Food Budget:
I think (but I can’t seem to find my receipt) that I spent about $100 at the wholesale club this week. That makes $238 so far for the month out of my $300 budget. So, even though I’m over for the week, I’m still doing great for the month.
