Turn Leftover Lasagna Noodles Into Delicious Pasta Crackers

Lasagna is a great way to feed your pasta craving. If you have leftover cooked noodles after prepping your lasagna, feed that craving even more by turning them into pasta crackers.

We waste a lot of food every year. And an ingredient like lasagna noodles is so specific, it’s hard to make anything else with it. Unless you get a little creative. The Ktchn lists a handful of ways to repurpose leftover lasagna, and this was one of my favourites (probably because it’s the easiest):

Whether you have cooked noodles or some fresh lasagna on hand, cut the sheets into chip-sized shapes. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay out the noodles in a single layer. Spray (or paint) with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt and spices…Then place the noodles in a 375°F oven to cook until slightly puffed and crispy, about eight to 10 minutes.

Of course, this only works with cooked or fresh noodles. So the dried stuff you get at the store would have to be cooked first to make these…which kind of defeats the purpose (you might as well just buy crackers). But this is a great way to use up leftovers, and you can check out additional tips at the link below.
