What to do with Leftover Lasagna Noodles?

sivyaleah | Jul 30, 2006 05:25 PM

I'm making a couple of small lasagnas today - I'm making them in 2 small loaf pans. Small because there is only 2 of us. This way one gets frozen in a nice compact way for later use.

My husband has been going back to school 3 nights a week - I get home from work around 6:45, he leaves at 7:30 so it only gives us 45 quick minutes to have dinner together. I'm trying to prep some things in advance this weekend which can be easily reheated in the microwave and eaten quickly. Lasagna fits those qualifications.

But I want to cook up the whole package of noodles. Usually I use the no-bake noodles but lately I haven't been pleased with the outcome of them so I'm going back to boiling them this time - just for reference sake since it's been so long.

I'm racking my brains out trying to come up with something interesting to do w/the leftover noodles. I don't want to repeat the baked cheese/tomato sauce idea - trying to come up with a different flavor. I'm thinking something w/pesto maybe? Or cutting up the remaining sheets into strips and using for a fast stir fry?

Any ideas?
