Loads of spaghetti carbonara left over. What to do with it?

I made too much last night. It isn't actually spaghetti, but bow-shaped pasta, but is still much the same thing.

It is sitting in the fridge looking solid and eggy. I hate wasting food, and don't usually get it so wrong.

What can I turn it into? And how?

Why can't you heat it up and have it for another meal ? confused - won't be the best could give it to the children, add some more cream if it is too solid grin.

Yeah, I could do that, Ragwort but I was wondering whether
I could reinvent it somehow! grin

Thank for responding. Maybe what I will do is freeze it in little batches. Then it can just be eaten as and when with salad.

Chop it up roughly, plop in oiled oven dish, breadcrumbs/grated cheese on top, oven. Voila!

Voila! indeed. Sounds good, actually.

If I freeze it for a few days then do that, Rollmops, will it still work?

See, whenever I have done this in the past, it has all been eaten. I don't think of this as a "what I do with the leftovers" kind of meal.

Why shouldn't it? I would try and freeze in said oven dish so need only be popped into oven when desired. :-)

Okeydoke. That is what I shall do then.
