What do you do with leftover spaghetti? It's a pity to toss it, but it's never quite as good reheated. It's an eternal problem solved seamlessly by the recipe below: a delicious quiche filled with leftover spaghetti. Yes! Spaghetti quiche!
The best part about this recipe is that it doesn't matter what sort of sauce was on your original pasta: marinara, pesto, even alfredo will all go well with this quiche. If your original spaghetti was plain, you might want to add a bit more cheese to the quiche to make it even more flavorful.
8 cups cooked spaghetti (from 1 pound uncooked), with sauce
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
6 large eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons melted butter
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the pasta and the Parmesan cheese, and mix well to combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, and milk until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Brush a pie plate with butter, and add the remaining butter to the batter.
Fold the pasta into the batter and mix well to combine. Pour the mixture into the pie plate.
Bake about 30 minutes, or until set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
