This is a very versatile dish that my Mom made me as a kid. We use to only have it when we had leftover spaghetti, but now I boil spaghetti just to make this. Use Thin Spaghetti, Angel Hair or Vermicelli.

"My husband loves fried spaghetti! Some family members don't like a lot of sauce, so we keep the spaghetti and sauce separate. If there's leftover spaghetti noodles I make it for him the next day for lunch.

I sautee some chopped onions and sometimes mushrooms for a few minutes in olive oil, with maybe a pat of butter added. Then add the cold spaghetti noodles, and fry them until they start to brown. Then I add a couple of eggs and scramble it all together. He adds parmasan cheese at the table. I've been making this for 30 years!! :)"

Servings  

Preparation

Cook spaghetti in salted water to al dente; drain.

Heat extra-virgin olive oil and butter with garlic over medium heat and cook garlic until it begins to soften, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove garlic. Fry the green onions and mushrooms in the seasoned oil for 3 to 4 minutes.

Add well-drained pasta to the pan and season with salt and pepper.

Toss the pasta liberally with the green onions, mushrooms and seasoned oil.

Notes

You can put almost anything in this. Any type of onion works also. I listed things on the ingredient list that I almost always put in, although there aren't any mushroom in the picture I will be posting. I served this with Chicken Georgia which already had mushrooms. I also topped it with fresh basil shredded into a chiffonade. Try adding a little ground ginger to this. YUMMY. When I want a main dish I add chopped ham or sometimes bacon. You get the point....the combination possibilities are endless.

I made this using only the olive oil, sauteed white onion and spaghetti do to several food allergies my children have. It still turned out fabulous! I served it with Lemon Chicken delicious.

This was good. It was not clear on when to fry the spaghetti though.

I make this dish with a few variations - I saute chopped medium-thick proscuitto, garlic and shallots, then sprinkle parmigiano reggiano on the proscuitto mixture, put in the spaghetti and pack it down somewhat. Then I cook one side until browned and crispy on the bottom. I add the fresh basil at the end, after it's inverted onto a plate. Then I put on freshly grated asiago cheese and serve hot. I use a pizza wheel to cut it. Yummy.

You could easily leave the mushrooms out. In the one in the picture I left the mushrooms out and topped with fresh basil. It was very good. I hope you like it.

This looks so good, but my family doesn't like mushrooms. I may try this recipe, substituting something in place of the mushrooms, although nothing comes to mind at the moment. Nice photo!
