Have you bitten off more than you can chew or have you been a little careless with your pasta? Are you tired of reheating the same dish? Don’t panic, there are a number of anti-waste solutions to accommodate leftover pasta and treat your guests.
Opt for recycling and transformation!
A few ingredients are enough to accompany your leftovers and give life to surprising recipes, so here are some simple, practical and economical ideas.
- Salads (see our blog post on this subject)
Pasta is just as good cold, with raw vegetables and finely chopped vegetables, accompanied by olives and a few fresh herbs, and finally, spiced up with a good vinaigrette.
Simply put your pasta in a gratin dish, add fresh cream, grated cheese, bacon or vegetables and you’re done!
- The salted cake
An ideal and original dish to make with the family. How about making a pasta cake with ham au gratin?
- The patties
Combine your leftover pasta with a mixture of egg, cheese and flour. These patties are easy to make and cook in a pan.
Pan-fry your pasta in a little olive oil and garnish with garlic, chives, or even pieces of bell pepper or small mushrooms. A little grilled, this pan-fried dish is a real treat!
- The omelette
Mix the beaten eggs with the pasta, a little grated cheese and fresh herbs and cook the whole thing in the pan. Original and tasty!
