Fried Pasta - Leftover Recipe

This fried pasta recipe is ideal to make if you all looking to use up leftover pasta in a quick and easy leftover recipe.

In our case we had some penne noodles leftover and we were looking to have a quick afternoon snack. The composition came to mind rather spontaneously it was a bit of a risk but it turned out a hit because of its sweetish hot flavor celebration. 

We are still in an experimenting phase when it comes to curries. So, there are some leftover fresh ingredients in our fridge this week. We have ginger and turmeric and the exciting flavors of lemon grass. Cooking can sometimes be like painting you add what you believe could work well together in that moment. Sometimes this results in really amazing and enjoyable flavors which leave you wanting more.
