So, you’ve got a bunch of tired-looking leftover pasta sitting in the fridge and it’s looking less and less tempting to eat as the days go by? Do not throw it away (or eat it in its tired version)! There are some great ways to give it a glow-up, making it even yummier than it was the day you made it. Sounds too good to be true? Try it and see for yourself.

Fried is Always Better

Here’s a must-try that TikToker @the_recommendista swears by, and it might actually change your life. All you need to do is take your leftover pasta, heat some olive oil in a pan, and get frying. Once you think it’s cooked through, sprinkle it with some grated cheese, and wait for it to become crispy.
