Spaghetti Pancake

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sandaidh

This is a great way to use up leftover spaghetti, especially when there's enough leftovers for one and a half people, but four or five people to feed. Dehydrated minced onion can be substituted for fresh, and you can use grated Parmesan cheese (canned/bottled or fresh) if desired. Cooking time will actually vary according to how high a heat you use. I'm not sure where I found the original recipe, but I suspect it's in my favorite cookbook again - The Creative Cooking Course, edited by Charlotte Turgeon.

This recipe shocked the heck out of me. I never thought this would be enough for 5 people but it did just that. Everyone loved this and when I have leftover Spaghetti again I know how I'm going to use it. Thanks for sharing this.
