How can I reuse or recycle leftover cooked pasta?
We covered leftover cooked rice about an eon ago but for some reason haven’t covered the other thing I usually over-estimate when cooking: pasta.
The obvious answer is, of course, lunch the next day and we usually go down the quick’n'easy route of it microwaved with a bit of pesto or fried up into a frittata.
And what about reusing it in other fun ways? I’m guessing like with cooked rice, pasta shapes work great as a filler in soups – just not added *too* early in the cooking process. Spaghetti/tagliatelle might be a bit too stringy for soups as they are but a little chopping up never hurt anyone.
Any other ingenious places you use it up? Or any crazy ways to use it in non-culinary situations?
