Appetizers reborn in pasta with veggies & prosciutto

What to do with the leftover crudités and a package of prosciutto from Super Bowl Sunday? Pasta. Pasta is the answer to many of life’s questions.

I sautéed the prosciutto in olive oil and garlic, then splashed in a little Chardonnay. Next, I folded in chopped celery and peppers. Once those softened and melded, I added parboiled broccoli and carrots, after slicing through them a bit.  At this point, I added a pat of butter as well as salt and pepper. While that cooked on low, I brought a pot of water to a boil for a half package of rotini.

Veggie pasta (shhh, it's from leftovers)

The meal came together with shredded parmesan and chopped parsley. This is my favorite kind of food: brightly colored, cheesy and over pasta.
