Slumgullion


What?  You've never heard of slumgullion?  How about mulligan stew?  Depending upon exactly where you live, they might be the same thing, or they might be different.  The stew might be slightly thinner and served in a bowl.  Then again, slumgullion can definitely be served in a bowl too.  Just depends...

Quick, easy, good use of left overs!

Slumgullion

Pasta
Left over meat
Vegetables of some sort
Tomato sauce and maybe some tomato paste too

Start the pasta cooking.  In a large skillet, heat the meat and saute the vegetables.  I think we used both left over hamburger and some sausage in the batch shown above.  Add the tomato sauce and heat through.  Add some tomato paste if needed.  When the pasta is cooked, drain it and add it to the skillet.  Serve any way you chose.

What a fun recipe and name.

I'm planning something similar with Italian sausage tonight.

* Some sausage browned and crumbled in olive oil along with chopped onion

* Sauce made with chicken broth, a touch of heavy cream and some nutmeg

* A few handfuls of fresh spinach leaves

* All mixed together with some drained pasta

Can I call this Italian slumgullion or would that be an insult to Italian cooking? LOL.

LOL!! I'm sure it's an insult to ANY ethnic cuisine, but it's tasty and a great way to use up leftovers, so who cares? :-)
