“Here's a great way to use up that extra cooked pasta. You can use sauced or plain, long or short pasta, as long as it is already cooked. Makes a great lunch dish, or a good side dish with your favorite meat for a quick summer dinner.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a heavy nonstick skillet.
  2. Have the pasta out at room temperature in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, cheese, fresh parsley and/or chives, and a lot of freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Pour egg mixture over pasta and toss it well.
  5. When butter has heated past the point of foaming, add pasta and flatten into a big pancake.
