Successful Dinner Remix

A previous thread regarding a "salad remix" inspired me to write this. I made a Braciole for Mother's Day (first time!). It was fabulous but I had a lot of leftovers and didn't want to just reheat it and eat it again so I wondered what I could do to turn this into something slightly different.

I decided to put the leftover slices covered in tomato sauce into my slow cooker with some diced carrots and celery, some seasonings and some beef broth. I simmered it for an additional 3 hours or so and VOILA! Swiss Steak! Sure, it was a stuffed swiss steak but it turned out so good my hubby proclaimed the dish better than the original. So, anybody else have any successful and interesting remixes like this?
