10 Healthy Ways to Use Leftover Pasta Sauce

Published by:

I abhor wasting food and I was getting tired of cluttering up the freezer with 1/2 jars of pasta sauce just because I was afraid I wouldn’t use it before it went bad. So I set up a challenge for myself. If I opened a jar of something I had to use it up within a week. The ideas below (I’m not calling them recipes because you barely need to measure a thing) show you how I used up an entire family-sized jar of pasta sauce in five days – serving it up for both lunch and dinner.

Balsamic Mushrooms

I sometimes double upon on this recipe so I can have them the next day over steak.

The carb count that Meal Planner Pro gives is not the net carb count. Be sure to use the net carb count I give in the serving size section.

Save RecipeSave Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion (about 2 ½-inches in diameter), peeled and sliced
  • 4 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Heat butter or oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onions and a small pinch of pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms and a small pinch of pepper. Continue cooking without stirring for two minutes. Add vinegar, stir and continue sautéing until vegetables are browned and the vinegar has caramelized, about four to five minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Don’t add salt while cooking or the vegetables won’t caramelize, they’ll steam as the salt releases their juices. Pile veggies on top of the steak.

Notes

Make Ahead: Make extra onions to use in sandwiches, or on top of a burger, a green salad ... Remove the extra onions before adding the mushrooms. Or, just go ahead and double up on the entire recipe as Balsamic Mushrooms are great on sandwiches, burgers, and salads.
