My inspiration came from The Chew when Mario Batali made taco's out of various leftovers. I went a few steps further and came out with a mouth watering, addictive pasta patty.

How to Make Recycled Pasta Patties

Step-by-Step

  • 1The pasta I used for this dish was leftover from supper the night before and this is what it was: linguine with a butter, garlic and fresh grated Parmesan sauce with sliced Italian sausage links. This is a "feel as you go" type of recipe, the amount of eggs and bread crumbs used to bind it will depend on the amount of pasta you have.
  • 2Bread crumb mixture: I ended up using 4 c of bread crumbs to about 1 c of jar Parmesan and 1 1/2 tsp of Mrs. Dash tomato and basil seasoning.
  • 3I chopped up my cold pasta and sausage (about 4 c), then placed in a bowl and added 3 eggs and about 1/2 c of bread crumb mixture. You will want to start with just egg(s)and mix well with pasta. When it feels good and coated add bread crumb mixture a little at a time until the pasta starts sticking together. Form a patty.
  • 4Then coat your patty with the bread crumb mixture.
  • 5Fry in about 2" of oil over med-med high heat, flipping once to brown on each side.
