All you have to do is check whatever leftovers you have in your kitchen or fridge and use all of that to make a one-pot dish that you can share with your family.

- 1 pound of pasta, any kind
- 2 (15-ounce) cans of pork and beans, or any beans
- Bell peppers, chopped
- Onions, chopped
- Granulated onion
- Granulated garlic
- Black pepper
- Cheese, any kind
Place a large pot on a stove over medium-high heat, then fill it with water, and sprinkle some salt. Bring it to a boil, then add the pasta, and cook them to desired doneness or according to the package instructions. Make sure to stir them around so that they don8217;t stick together, then once done cooking, drain off all the water, and transfer the pasta to a bowl setting it aside for later. After pouring out all of the pasta water from the pot, put the pot back on the stove over medium heat, then add the add canned beans followed by the chopped bell pepper and onion, and add other leftover veggies or meat that you want.
Season them with granulated onion, granulated garlic, black pepper, salt, and other seasonings that you want to use, then add them to taste, and give them a good mix until combined. Adjust the flavor to taste, then heat them through, and cook to the desired doneness. Add the drained and unrinsed pasta, then mix them all together until well combined, and cook them for about 4 to 5 minutes. Now, add the cheese (you can mix all of the cheese that you want to use), then give them a good mix, and serve. Enjoy!
