    Last week I came down with a flu first action my wife took, was to make a chicken soup.

    Ok you eat 1 day 2 days  ok 3days, but after 3 dayes  there  is  a  15 oz  (0.5 litter) leftover of soup.

    at   our home   we dont throw away good food .

    so I will do a gravy  like a recipe from diners drive-ins and dives  . I did a roux .

    I mix in the flour for the roux,  salt, pepper, red hot paprika, cumin, garlic powder.

    I mix the roux  with the soup and it turnd  Wicked .ok change of plans .....I fried   cubes of salami and mushrooms.

    in   a pot I par boil pasta .(pane pasta  and flat pasta ) and put it in a aluminium  pan .mix in the mushrooms and salami . add to the gravy  1/2 lb of cheddar cheese ,1/2 lb gouda cheese .mix it with the macaroni.

       Sprinkle½ lb     shredded mozzarella  cheese on top .in to  the oven for 45 minute at  350°f. ......

    At the last minute i managed to rescue  a piece to take a photo for the Q /view . the family polisht it quick quick.

    That sounds awesome and obviously, it was a crowd pleaser. We're a family that never throws anything away either. Thanks for sharing the great idea.
