Spaghetti Triangles


I had some leftover spaghetti, and needed lunch. Like, right now. This took about one minute of prep, and 6 minutes of cooking. Pretty perfect! You could call this spaghetti pizza, fried spaghetti, spaghetti omelette... I think of it mostly as a tortilla or frittata, but I sold it to my toddler as "spaghetti triangles". (Which you can barely see in the photo.. but time was of the essence, so to speak.)

Spaghetti Triangles
serves 1-2
2 eggs
2 slices of smoked ham, cut into strips
1 scallion, cut into thin slices
a big handful of leftover, cooked spaghetti

Heat some peanut (or olive) oil in a skillet - you want it pretty hot!

Mix up the eggs, ham and scallions. Add  in the spaghetti and mix well - using your hand works very well.

Pour it into the hot skillet, and fry for three minutes on each side on medium-high heat.

Cut into wedges - triangles- and serve. Season if you want to, but mine was plenty salty from the ham. I bet sriracha would be good with this, for those seeking a spicy kick.

This is a great idea. The crunchy edges on baked pasta are always the best bits, so I'm sure this would be delicious. I am going to make extra pasta for dinner tomorrow to give me an excuse to try it. Thank you!
