What to do with leftover whole wheat linguini?

I have about six servings of whole wheat linguine (that wasn't very good to start with) that I hate to throw out?

Any ideas for using it?

  1. I suppose you could useit to make a fritatta heavy on the cheese, but if it wasn't very good in the first place why would you? It's not like it has major nutritional value or a high price. All depends on your needs.

      I guess it's just the principle of it -- I just wanted to see if someone had an idea.

      Thanks for replying, escondido.

    2. I'd make a big pot of chicken soup or mixed veggie soup, cut the linguine into short pieces, and add it to the pot during the last 10 minutes or so of simmering. Presumably the pasta would soak up the flavor of the broth and since it would be mixed in with all the other yummy ingredients in the soup you wouldn't notice it so much.

        With beans and greens coincidently my next meal .Chick peas , fava beans and spinach ( I've used chard,escarole,beet green and rabe ) evo garlic and s&p .Wholewheat spaghetti and Romano.

      2. It might be too late, but my mom always pan-fried leftover pasta in a bit of butter so it comes out a little crispy, with parm on top. Great snowy day lunch.

        1. Thanks to all for your replies.

          Kate's sounds the easiest, so that's probably what I'll do.
