Pasta Pizza

Last week when it was unbearably hot I threw this dinner together in minutes.
After looking into my fridge for something to make I remembered I had this small container of leftover angel hair pasta with veggies that I had made a couple of days before.
Instead of just reheating in my microwave I turned it into a “pizza”!
My leftover veggie pasta was made with, zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, peas, artichoke hearts and cherry tomatoes, all were roasted beforehand and then tossed into hot angel hair pasta adding olive oil, fresh basil and grated romano cheese.
To create the “pizza” I just added 2 beaten eggs and more grated romano cheese right into the  leftover container, mixed it together, then poured the pasta mixture into a hot skillet that was drizzled with olive oil.
 When it turns golden on the bottom, place a plate on top of the pan and flip the “pizza” over to the other side and let it cook until golden and set, then slip it out on to your serving plate.
 Garnish with more basil and grated romano.
Cut into wedges and serve this with a nice salad, some crusty bread and a nice cold glass of your favorite wine and your dinner is good to go!

Who knew leftovers could taste so good!

  1. Such a great idea! I am going to have to try this.

  2. Well done! We first ran into a plain version of this on antipasti tables in Naples. It also makes a nice emergency brunch on those “special” Saturday mornings.

    Newsflash! The Swedish Academy just started issuing Nobel prizes for leftover Italian food recipes and YOU WON! Lady, why does EVERYTHING you make look so DELICIOUS? I await your answer.

  4. Pasta pizza! Two of my favorite things in one dish.

  5. Brilliant. I will have to try this!

  6. This looks amazing!

  7. I love this idea for using leftover spaghetti!

  8. Whenever I make pasta with ricotta sauce, I always make the leftovers into a frittata this way, Marie. It is one of my husband’s favorite meals!

  9. This looks really good! We love pizza and love pasta and this is a perfect combination. Thanks for posting the recipe.

  10. You are such a smartie! Looks like a tart to me! Stay cool.

  11. So this is how I trick my child into eating pasta? :) Thanks!

  12. When I saw the title of the post, I thought “What? pasta on pizza?” But I should have known you would come up with a winner like this. I agree with anonymous – everything you make looks so darn delicious.

  13. On the rare occasion that there’s left-over spaghetti in this family, we’ll also bake it in casserole in a similar manner as your pizza. Yes, as you said, what an incredible way to use left-overs. My son in Chi-town reported daily on the heatwave that hit last week. Hope you’re getting a break from it now.

  14. I have often rustled leftover pasta into a “pizza” like this, but mine have never looked as pretty as this! Perfect hot weather, late night, anytime. Even planned!

  15. Looks gorgeous! It can alternately be called a spaghetti frittata.

  16. What impresses me so much is how good you made this dish look. Pasta Pizza combines two amazing foods, but you would not expect that it would actually look so appetizing…

  17. my family calls this macaroni pie :) so yummy!

  18. We nearly always cook extra pasta so we’ll have leftovers and this is an outstanding way to reuse them.

  19. Yummmmmm! Hope to get a chance to try it!!!

  20. Smart use of leftovers! With that salad, looks like a perfect summer dinner!

  21. I love dropping by to drool over your latest creations and today I’m featuring this post in Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and it’s always a pleasure following you…

  22. Wow, this is actually something a bit different which I’m always looking for! Looks delicious and I’m going to try
    this very soon!

  23. Making a frittata di pasta is a classic! Problem in our house is we never have any leftover pasta, lol!

  24. What a great way to use some of my garden veggies! Can’t wait to make this.

  25. Oh my goodness…this looks soooooo good.

    Everything on here does.

  26. Marie… fantastic… like the frittata we make on Sunday mornings. (I am sure I have a picture somewhere in my writing… if not I will add one and another post) I finish mine in the over, but I think this might be better, especially in the summer!
    Looks delicious
