If you happened to make too many hamburger patties last night, then you've got quite a few options for dinner tonight. You could simply re-heat the patties and indulge in a burger for the second night in a row, or you could crumble up the meat and stew it in a tomato sauce for a simple sloppy joe or add a few extra spices and ingredients and turn it into a chili. Or, once re-heated, you could sprinkle on top of a bed of luscious salad greens. If none of those options sound appealing, how about a hamburger pasta salad? To check out the recipe,
8 oz. rigatoni pasta, cooked al dente
4 oz. leftover grilled hamburger paties, diced
2 oz. fresh Roma tomatoes, diced
1 onion, finely chopped
1 large clove elephant garlic, finely crushed
2 cups thick set natural Greek or Balkan yogurt
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. fresh basil, finely chopped
Raddichio leaves to serve
parsley sprigs to garnish
- Arrange raddichio leaves on a platter.
- Using a large salad bowl, combine rigatoni, hamburger chunks, tomatoes and onion. In another bowl, thoroughly mix together garlic, yogurt, salt, black pepper and basil. Pour dressing over salad and mix well.
- Spoon rigatoni and hamburger salad onto raddichio leaves. Chill for half an hour and serve cold, garnished with parsley sprigs.
