Spaghetti Fritters

Serves: 4-6

Time:20 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and finely chopped.
  • 1 tsp flat leave parsley (if using fresh then chop)
  • 2 eggs,
  • 1 egg yolk,
  • 50g grated cheddar cheese.
  • 1 tbsp of tuna (optional)
  • 1-2 chillies (De-seeded and chopped)
  • Salt and black pepper,
  • 200g/7oz dried spaghetti

Method

  1. Put all of the ingredients, apart from the spaghetti and olive oil, into a bowl and mix together using a wooden spoon.
  2. Add your dried spaghetti to a pan of boiling water and cook until soft. (the pasta will turn from a dark brown colour to a lighter creamy colour)
  3. Drain the pasta in a colander and rinse under cold water to cool down.
  4. Once the pasta is cool, cut it using a pair of scissors into pieces roughly 8cm/3 inches long and add them to the bowl with all of the other ingredients in.
  5. Mix everything together well.
  6. Pour a small amount of oil into a frying pan and place on the heat. Then using a fork, add piles (as big or as small as you like) of the spaghetti mixture to the pan and fry until golden and crisp on both sides, or if you prefer a crispy and darker golden colour cook on a slightly higher heat.

This is a different way to make spaghetti look and taste cool! These fritters go really well with a tasty salad and warm crusty bread. Go on…. bring some of that Mediterranean sun and flavours into your house!
