Murray's Fried Spaghetti

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by 2Bleu

A great use of leftovers, and one of Bird's Dad's best recipes for a budget. Amounts are rough estimates, as it just depends on how much 'leftover' stuff you have available. Salt and black pepper are the only spices needed for this dish, although peppery makes a nice kick to it.

Great tasting dish!! I'm a student who needed a fast, tasty meal for dinner after study, and this served perfectly with my leftover breaded chicken and veggies.
