Spaghetti Fritters: new frugal favorite made of spaghetti leftovers !
It is obvious we had spaghetti yesterday. I made too much of them. Since our mission is to live frugally, I have made these spaghetti fritters to use the leftovers; roast included. If you have smoked bacon or any kind of sausages, burgers or salami, they all make an excellent substitute for roast. The point is to use leftovers. Altogether, it makes 11 fritters and if you make a bowl of salad, it is a lunch/dinner for 3 – 4 persons.
- 2 cups spaghetti leftovers
- 1 1/2 cup cheese ( Gouda, Mozzarella or any other melting cheese )
- 2 eggs
- 4 Tbsp cooking cream
- 2 Tbsp bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup roast leftovers
- 3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
- Salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 1 Tbsp Pelatti
In a bowl, mix eggs, cream and cheeses
Add the rest of the ingredients to combine.
In a pan, heat the oil over medium heat.
Gather small swirls of the pasta using a spoon and a fork.
Carefully put into the hot oil. Cook the fritters in batches on both sides until golden and crisp.
Drain on paper towel. Garnish with fresh origano and basil leaves. Serve warm.
