Easy Saucy Pasta for the Homemaking Party

Welcome to the Homemaking Party!  Tonight I want to share with you an easy way to prepare a quick pasta dish with leftovers from your fridge---plus a few things you probably already have on hand!

Easy Saucy Pasta

1 pkg. pasta
1 can chicken broth***
2-3 Tbs. corn starch***
salt & pepper
garlic (powder or fresh)
basil (dried or fresh)
1 Tb. oil
leftover cooked meat, cubed
chopped, uncooked vegetables

Cook the pasta.  In the meantime, mix cornstarch, spices, and any dried herbs together in a bowl. Whisk in broth and set bowl aside.  Heat oil in large skillet and stir fry meat and veggies for a few minutes.  Add cooked pasta, any fresh herbs or garlic, and broth mixture.  I always whisk the mixture again right before pouring in.  ***see note below*** Stir together well, and let the broth mixture come to a boil---stirring constantly.  When sauce has thickened, it's ready to eat!  We like to sprinkle parmesan cheese on top and serve with crusty bread.
***This recipe makes a large batch because we are a big family!  If you're making a small amount (like just half a pkg. of pasta) then I'd recommend only pouring some of this broth mixture into your skillet and stirring.  You will want to control how "saucy" it gets if you are making a smaller batch.

Now for the linkup.  Please remember to return the favor by adding my button or a text link to your post.  Have a great weekend!
