 Single-Serving Pasta Salads - One can of tuna fish and a scoop of leftover noodles makes a mighty fine lunch. Leftover chicken or roasted veggies work equally as well. I love how the pasta gets slightly crunchy in spots from the hot pan!Buttered Noodles -

This was a favorite in our previous leftover pasta round-up, and with good reason! For an afternoon snack, there's nothing quite so delicious as a wee bowl of noodles warmed with butter and sprinkled with salt.

Even though I prefer only a spoonful of sauce to my gigantic mound of pasta, everyone else I feed likes to drown their stuff in sauce. This means I always end up with that notorious Tupperware container full of leftover spaghetti noodles. I admit to having thrown away many servings of perfectly fine spaghetti, and each time, a mini version of my mother appears on my shoulder and wags her finger at me. Now I save all my left over pasta and use it either in salads or at this time of the year put a lot into my soups.

What do you do with your left over pasta - we would all love to hear our tips and ideas plus of course recipes as well.

I like to freeze mine. If you have a heavy freezer bag; after it thaws, you can just fill it up with really HOT water and it's ready to go.

Spaghetti pie is a favorite; of course adding to soups.
I have made pasta cakes ... like potato cakes. Add an egg, a little flour, ham or veggies ... but, make sure to cut up the pasta. They come out really good.

I like ... not just the common pasta salads; but, I'll add mine to watercress and arugula; along with a protein. It's makes a great salad for dinner.

Good morning

I like to make asian noodles with my leftover pasta, either sesame noodles, mar mar noodles or linguini with green onion, or simple buttered egg noodles, works with most noodles and it tastes good too.

No, I just toss a bunch of pasta, like potatoes with a few veggies, cheese, egg, etc.
I pretty much just a basic potato cake recipe. Or a hashbrown cake recipe. Just pan saute.

I've never measured, sorry. Spaghetti works best; but, I have used elbows too.
