Looking for some creative ideas to use Spaghetti noodles for. I usually dry and package my own "mountain house" style meals, but I've ran out of sauce and have a ton of noodes laying around needing some love.
Any ideas?

Aglio e olio.  Garlic and oil.  Sautee minced garlic in olive oil, toss in cooked pasta.  You can also add some red pepper flakes, grated cheese, anchovies...

That, sounds interesting. Exactly what do I do with that? Just add and mix?
I have powdered peanut butter (I KNOW, epic) that I could try in it.

Just like Chineese cold noodles with sesame paste.. same idea with the peanut butter.. you can add some soy sauce to loosen it up a bit.. throw in some scallions n red pepper flakes n go to town.

My wife makes noodles with shrimp n brocolli, oil n garlic.

SOOOOoooooo nice!

I haven't actually made this on the trail, but reading the ideas here convinced me to try it at home and it's one of my favorite meals now (except with rice,not pasta)

Believe it or not, peanut butter, olive oil, and rosemary are a fantastic combo.

You can always try forming the noodles into a noodle "patty", and frying it crisp in oil or butter.  Then you can top this patty with whatever you want, like eggs and cheese.  I haven't tried this, just brainstorming of what I do with Ramen.

I find there is little tastier than spaghetti tossed with olive oil, a little red pepper flakes, parsley and a ton of Parmesan cheese. Maybe soem garlic. Best if you saute the oil with spices, then toss with hot pasta and cheese. Simple. Good.

There are near endless possibilities when using Spaghetti as pasta.... but, what can it be used for aside from the norm?  

I love the peanut/Thai idea ....

Can you make a dessert treat out of them? Only partial hydrate them, then fry
in butter and top with cinnamon sugar?

For Breakfast?  Top with Over Easy Egg and some Cheese and Bacon Bits.  
Break the Yolk and let it get all over the noodles... mix it all up.

Can you make some trail mix with the Spaghetti? Fry the already dried Pasta
with some seasoning add some nuts, dried fruit and other GORP ingredients.

Have you ever thought of pulverizing the Dried noodles and using that as a flour?  I'm not sure how it would work out, but would make an interesting Fry!

Chicken or Beef Boullion, dehy noodles and some dehy veggies makes a good soup anyday.  I love to add some instant mashed potatoes to any soup for "substance".

You can also reconstitute the noodles and use them to hold an omlette together... Also you can make a sort of "Orzo" recipe, as that is mainly pasta.

Let us know how it all turns out
