I've been in a little bit of a lunch slump with the kids lately. They get very tired of sandwiches and are in a phase of not wanting to try anything new. I remembered this recipe, if you can even call it that, and I'm so glad I did. It's spaghetti pizza and all you really need on hand is leftover spaghetti in sauce.
I remember my dad frying up leftover pasta in olive oil and this is pretty much the same thing, only formed into a disc and cut into slices. You take 2 eggs and beat them up in a large mixing bowl. Add a generous amount of salt & pepper and a handful of grated parmesan cheese. Then throw in the leftover pasta in its sauce and mix to coat well with the egg mixture. Heat up a large frying pan with some olive oil and pour in the pasta mixture, spreading evenly and pressing down a little. Wait as long as you can before trying to flip this, or it will be a huge mess. Make sure you really brown the bottom, use an inverted plate to flip it over, and then fry the other side.
I sprinkle more cheese on at the end, and slice it with a pizza cutter. It's a hit with everyone, kids and adults, and it always makes me feel better using up leftovers.
