Fried Spaghetti

If your family likes pasta, ones in a while you probably end up with leftovers.
So what do you do with them?
Do you re-heat them and eat them (Done that)
Do you toss them? (Try not to trash food)
Or do you do something to eat them in a different way?

We try as much as we can to re-invent any leftovers that we have of anything or I should say everything.

I certainly can't take the credit for the originality of this recipe as it is something that I had heard long time ago, yet I will say I have done this recipe a number of times never based on a recipe and never the same as before. I use what I have at the moment and most of the time they are different from the ones made before. So don't let the ingredients stop you from making arañitas.

Ready in: 15 Minutes (4 prep, 16 cook)
Ingredients
  • Leftover Pasta (spaghetti or angel hair pasta preferably)
  • Garlic to taste (about 1tsp for every 2 cup of pasta)
  • Oregano to taste (about 1tsp for every cup of pasta)
  • Salt to taste (Optional)
  • 1/2 cup Pepper jack cheese per every 2 cups of pasta (Optional)
  • 1 egg per every 2 cups of pasta
  • Bread crumbs (about 1tbs for every cup of pasta
  • Frying oil and frying pan

  2. Place frying pan in stove and add frying oil, wait till it's hot (If you have a deep frying pan is much better)
  3. using a fork take small portions of the pasta mix and start placing them in the frying pan.
  4. Let the pasta (arañitas) fry until golden brown, flipping them as needed.
  5. Remove from pan and place in a plate with paper towel to absorb the excess oil
