Leftover Spaghetti Pizza
Yields 4 servings.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 lightly packed cups leftover spaghetti (see notes)
  • 3 tablespoons olive or avocado oil


  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the Parmesan cheese. Toss with the leftover spaghetti, making sure the spaghetti is fully covered with the egg mixture. (I do not add salt, as the Parmesan and sauce from the spaghetti provide ample flavor; you made add a sprinkle of salt and pepper if desired.)
  2. Heat the olive oil in a 9 or 10-inch skillet over medium heat. The skillet should be hot enough that a piece of spaghetti dropped into the pan sizzles. If it sizzles, the oil is ready.
  3. Pour the spaghetti mixture into the pan and distribute it evenly, pressing down lightly. Cook approximately 7 minutes on the first side, or until golden brown and crispy around the edges.
  4. To flip the pasta, carefully slide it onto a dinner plate. Cover with a second dinner plate and flip. (I think this is easier and safer than flipping directly from the hot skillet. I do this over the sink, taking care not to drip, as there will be residual oil that has not been absorbed by the noodles.) Slide the pasta back into the skillet, and cook the other side for 4 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Slide the pasta onto a serving platter, cut into wedges, and serve warm with a little extra cheese and/or sauce, if desired.


  • I use spaghetti with the sauce already mixed in, and I recommend stirring the leftover sauce and noodles together before refrigerating. That way, the spaghetti is on the drier side, having absorbed most of the sauce. You could also make this recipe with no sauce, serving with extra marinara on the side. When cooking with plain noodles, a little provolone and chipped or thinly sliced salami are tasty additions.
