Frittata di pasta with some leftover veggies
Frittata di pasta is a delicious pan-fried egg pasta that is very easy to cook. You won’t have to go out shopping for this recipe as you’ll find all the ingredients in your kitchen already!
|200g cooked Agastya Pasta Pasta sauce 2 eggs, beaten Parmesan cheese Salt and freshly ground black pepper Olive oil Butter Leftover veggies( spinach, capsicum, carrot, beans etc)|
|Mix cooked pasta with a little pasta sauce. You only need enough sauce to coat the pasta; otherwise, it will be too runny when you add the egg. Then add egg, leftover veggies and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Ensure that the ingredients are well mixed.Heat oil and butter in an omelette pan and tip the mixture into the pan.Press down with the back of a wooden spoon to create a flat cake. Fry on each side for about 5 minutes, or until golden brown. So when the first side is cooked, flip onto a plate and then slide back into the pan. Continue cooking until done.Serve immediately, cut into wedges, sprinkled with a little grated Parmesan.|
Sesame spring onions pasta with leftover curry
This recipe is savoury, delicious and time-efficient. The main ingredient here is leftover curry to add extra flavour. Also, we have sesame and spring onion which has many health benefits to top it all.
|Cooked Agastya Pasta Vegetable oil (use a neutral one) Sesame oil Dark soy sauce Light soy sauce Sugar Spring onions Fresh ginger, very finely chopped Garlic cloves, very finely chopped Leftover curry|
|Whisk the oils together, soy sauces, vinegar, sesame oil and sugar. Pour over the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Check the seasoning as you may need to add salt, despite the fact that soy sauce is quite salty.Leave the sauce for about 20 minutes, so that all the flavours get to know each other. You can use it immediately, although it’s better left to infuse.For even more flavour, gently warm up the oils until they are hot but not smoking. Pour over the remaining ingredients to wilt the spring onions. Now add your leftover curry and cook it for a minute or so, then stir in the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and sugar. Set aside.Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Drain. Or use yesterday’s leftover pasta. Cold spaghetti is perfectly acceptable, but refresh it first with boiling water, then drain.Toss the noodles into the sauce. Top with some freshly chopped spring onion and roasted sesame seed.|
