Before you toss anything out, think, “Can I repurpose this into something else?” You may be surprised at what you can create with leftovers. This pasta recipe is an excellent example of repurposing leftovers that may seem like nothing.


Leftover sauce from Mussels Provençal.

Linguine or spaghetti

Seafood, such as leftover mussels, shrimp, and/or clams.


To prepare this seafood pasta dish, start by boiling water for the pasta. Once the water is ready, cook the pasta until it reaches al dente. While the pasta is cooking, prepare the seafood and sauce.

Heat the leftover sauce from Mussels Provençal over medium heat.

Add the shrimp and cover the pot. Steam the shrimp until they are pink and cooked. Using a slotted spoon, scoop out the shrimp and set them aside.

Next, if using clams, add them to the pot and repeat the process to steam them until they are starting to open. If there are any leftover mussels, warm them while the clams finish cooking (or shrimp if not using clams).

Add the shrimp back in and stir well. The seafood sauce is now ready to toss and serve with the pasta.

I often cook "au pif," as we say in France, which means cooking without an exact recipe and by "feel" using your intuition.  You’ll often find guidelines in many recipes versus exact quantities.  Write to me here if you have any questions about the recipes.

  • A Real Game Changer

    "We have made a lot of progress over here under your care. We are now all eating from the same “pot” which I was surprised how much my kids loved. They were so excited when I put the food in the middle of the table. They asked for it the next day, Can we do that special fancy dinner thing where we have a feast? It really is such a better ritual—passing the food around and all sharing from the same platter, a real game changer."

    “I don't know if I told you, but I accidentally lost about 8 lbs after cutting out most semi-processed foods!"
