Many of you long-time readers know that some of my best recipes have come from my (kind of obsessive) need to use leftovers as efficiently as possible. I absolutely hate throwing food away – it's a pet peeve of mine. So, if my family is sick of a meal we've been eating for a day or two, I'll often change it up a little by throwing it in a casserole or a baked dish.

I've found some pretty great recipes by doing this over the years (and saved a ton of money, to boot). Today's recipe is definitely one of those!

Over the summer, our family had a shrimp boil – and, if you've ever done one, you know that you have so many leftovers afterwards. Look, I love shrimp and potatoes as much as the next girl – but there are only so many single shrimp you can eat. So, instead of throwing those leftovers away (shudder…), I turned them into a casserole that my family ended up loving! I really wasn't originally planning on making this into a blog post, so this might not come across as the most photogenic recipe ever – but trust me, the flavors are unbelievable.

This would be a great way to use up really any kind of meat and potatoes meal with a few simple veggie/sauce changes. For more of a beef base, I'd use a darker sauce (maybe something similar to a gravy). For chicken, you could even do a cream/alfredo based-sauce with this – that would be so yummy! And the veggie possibilities are endless. Peas, broccoli, carrots, or even mushrooms could be subbed in. Just use what you have – this is a versatile one!
