Notes

Tips and tricks:
  • You can boil the pasta and fry it, but you will have better results if the pasta is from the day before and it is completely cold.
  • Any type of pasta can be fried, and you can make it crunchy and thin or thick and soft.
  • The secret for a crunchy fried pasta is to use the right amount of pasta per egg and the addition of parmesan cheese.
  • If you don't want to use the egg, you can still stir fry the pasta by turning it regularly with a wooden spoon.
