Leftover Pasta

If you have any left over pasta, don't throw it away!
There are some taste dishes you can make with it.

1. Pasta omelet: probably the easiest thing ever. You heat a little oil in a pan and add the pasta. Stir two eggs in a bowl and pour it over the pasta. Don't stir once it's in the pan! season with a salt and pepper. When the omelet in browning and dry it's done. Really good with simple ketchup.

2. Oven pasta: this works especially great with leftover spinach pasta. Put the pasta in an oven-dish. Add any left over boiled vegetables like brocolli, spinach even cabbage will work. Pour tomato sauce, pesto or any kind of sauce you have over the pasta. You can also add leftover meat like meatballs or bacon. Season and put some grated cheese on top. Bake at 200 C for about 20 minutes or till it lookes done.

3. Pasta salade: Put the cold pasta in a bowl. Put in some letuce, sliced tomato, tin tuna and mayonaise. Stir together with a little olive oil. You can really add anything you like in a salade even leftover chicken (make sure it's cooked) or bacon or something. Be creative!

I hope this gives you a few ideas of what to do with your leftovers.
