Fried Leftover Vegetable Linguine Pasta

April 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

One of my favourite ways to eat pasta is to fry up the leftovers. The noodles become hard and slightly crunchy and the pasta sauce is sweet with pronounced savoury notes. When I make pasta, I sauté whichever vegetables that I have lying around in the fridge and add an organic pasta sauce to it. The next day when the noodles have hardened and the sauce has been absorbed, I take the pasta out of the fridge and fry it up for a snack or dinner. If you are in the mood for something spicy, throw on some hot sauce.

Cooking time 10 minutes

Ingredients:
linguine
1 tbsp + 1 tbsp (15 ml+ 15 ml) olive oil
1/2 onion diced
2 cloves garlic crushed
2 stalks of celery chopped
2 stalks of kale leaves roughly chopped
1 small pepper chopped
pasta sauce
salt
pepper
parmesan (optional)
hot sauce (optional)

Method:
1. To make the original pasta dish, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil and sauté the onions. When lightly brown, add the garlic, stir and add the veggies and cook until soft but still firm. Add the pasta sauce and toss with cooked linguine.

2. To make the fried leftover pasta, heat a medium-sized saucepan on medium heat and add 1 tbsp of olive oil. Add the leftover pasta and stir occasionally. When it’s ready, sprinkle with salt and freshly grated pepper. Turn off the heat and serve.
