5 Leftover Pasta Ideas

Try these 5 ideas to avoid wasting your pasta!

Spaghetti Frittata:

You can make a frittata with leftover spaghetti. In a pan with a drizzle of oil, cook the pasta for a few minutes before adding beaten eggs, a touch of pepper, and a little grated Parmigiano Reggiano. Cook for about 15 minutes over medium heat, covered, before flipping the frittata. Turn it over and finish cooking it on the other side.

Pasta Pizza:

This looks like a pizza, but it's made out of spaghetti. To create it, combine leftover pasta with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, pepper, and basil. Pour the mixture onto a baking pan with a drizzle of oil, then level it out to make a spherical shape. Cover the top with sliced mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, olives, and anchovies, then bake for about 10 minutes at 400° F.

Savory Pasta Pie:

Pasta leftovers make a delicious savoury pie filling. Cut it up and toss it with veggies like zucchini and potatoes, as well as stringy cheeses like provolone or fontina, or even tofu. Pour the batter into a cake pan lined with puff pastry and bake at 350° F for 20 to 30 minutes.

Pasta Timbale:

Cover the leftover spaghetti with a thin layer of béchamel sauce and bake it in a baking pan. Cover with thinly sliced mozzarella and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and bake for 15 minutes at 400° F.

Pasta Croquettes:

Pasta croquettes are ideal for an aperitivo. Toss the pasta with the eggs, grated cheese, and breadcrumbs, then shape the croquettes with a cube of fontina in the centre. Bread the croquettes and cook them in a large amount of oil.
