Vegetarian Grenadiermarsch

Grenadiermarsch was a leftovers dish for the staff of the upper classes in the Austro-Hungarian empire. It typically contained leftover meats with potatoes and pasta. This is my vegetarian version for when I feel that I need a hearty carb feast. Use any pasta that you fancy, I used penne.
