I have always been a cook who makes good use of my leftovers. Casseroles, hashes, salads, sandwiches, pot pies, soups . . . there is no end to the uses I find for them. I often find the leftovers more delicious than the main meal, and I don't think I am alone in that! I cannot imagine anyone not liking leftovers!
This is quite an old recipe I am showing you here today for a delicious casserole you can make with your leftovers from your Sunday roast dinner. Beef, Lamb or Pork are lovely done this way, and you can also make use of any leftover vegetables you might have as well as leftover gravy.
The meat is layered on the bottom of the dish and then covered with layers of vegetables . . . celery, onion, carrots, peas and corn . . . you could use whatever vegetable you have leftover really, or fresh vegetables or even frozen mixed vegetables.
Next comes a layer of cooked pasta and then you pour a delicious sauce over all which leaks down as it is cooking into all of the layers, flavouring them and keeping them moist. There is a delicious layer of bread crumbs and cheese which is placed over all which gives it a nice toasty crunch. All in all there's plenty to enjoy in this tasty casserole. I hope you will give it a go!

I don't think anyone can call me a wastrell! I think I get it from my mum. She could make a meal out of anything!
