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.
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons finely minced onions
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 3 1⁄2 cups cold cooked spaghetti or 3 1⁄2 cups leftover spaghetti
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (optional)
- In a medium size mixing bowl, beat together eggs, onion, oregano, salt and pepper.
- Add spaghetti and toss well.
- In a large skillet, melt 2 TBSP butter or margarine over medium heat and heat until foam goes away.
- Add spaghetti mix, and sprinkle with cheese if desired.
- Cook until the bottom is lightly browned.
- Turn out onto a large plate.
- Melt remaining butter or margarine.
- Put spaghetti back into pan, uncooked side down.
- Cook until lightly browned.
- Turn out onto large plate or platter, cut into slices and serve.
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.
My son made spaghetti the other night and cooked way too may noodles so I decided to give this recipe a try. Neat idea! It seemed a little dry but I didn't measure the spaghetti so I "might" have had more than 3 1/2 cups. Gonna try this one again and add some mozzarella.
