No matter how hard I try, when I cook spaghetti for my family, I can not make the exact amount of noodles we can eat. There is always extra and I hate to throw them out. My mother has a pasta salad recipe that I love. It is sweet and savory. I take the extra noodles and what ever veggies I have on hand in the fridge and put them in my salad. For this one I used cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumber and green olives. Sliced them up and added them to the noodles. For the dressing I use equal parts of three things you probably have on hand all the time. Canola oil, white sugar and Cider Vinegar. The amounts of them I use depends on the amount of noodles I have left over. For this small amount I used 1/8 cup of each of the three. If I have a lot of noodles, I may use 1/2 cup each. That part you have to play by ear. These are the spices I use....
I would love to hear what you do with your leftover noodles. Please share!
