Whether it’s following a holiday celebration or just a regular weeknight, there’s leftover stuff in your fridge you don’t know what to do with. Instead of tossing it out, morph the remnants into new creations instead.

Marinara Sauce
Not enough sauce left for spaghetti and meatballs? Instead, use for homemade pizza, calzones or even soup. Combine chicken broth, diced butternut squash and marinara sauce – cook until squash is tender and puree for an amazingly flavorful lunch or dinner.

Cheese
Turn the leftovers from that cheese platter into fondue, quiche or mac and cheese.

Greek Yogurt
This tart and tangy yogurt is one of the more versatile ingredients in your kitchen. If you only have a small amount, use to cut some of the fat in recipes that call for mayo or make creamy and protein packed smoothies, salad dressings and dipping sauces

Roasted Vegetables
Whirl any leftover roasted vegetables into an entirely new meal – sip as soup or even toss them with some whole grain pasta.

Cookies
