1 lb. baking potatoes

2 medium Granny Smith apples, cored

1 large egg

1 tsp. dried oregano

1/2 tsp. salt

3-4 cups homemade or jarred marinara sauce

1 cup shaved parmesan cheese

8 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced

16 ounces angel hair pasta

Directions

Shredded Apple and Potato Cakes


Grate the potatoes, apples, and onion and place in a colander. Set colander in bowl and squeeze out as much moisture as possible from the grated mixture, then return the potato mixture to a large bowl. Sprinkle the potato mixture with lemon juice. Stir in bread crumbs, parsley, egg, oregano, Sriracha black pepper seasoning and salt. Add 2 tbsp. flour to the mixture if it is not dry enough to form into pancakes easily. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Form the pancakes into hand-sized pancakes, makes about 12. Cook the pancakes in batches in the skillet, turning once, until crisp and golden, add remaining oil as needed. Keep warm in the oven until it is time to assemble the dish.


Scrap pie


Preheat waffle maker. Mix flour, salt, garlic seasoning, and ground black pepper in a pie plate. Slice Original Rapa Scrapple into 3/8" slices. Dredge each slice in the flour mixture, coating both sides and all edges. Place dredged slices of Original Rapa Scrapple into pre-heated waffle maker, making sure there is enough room to cook the slices individually. Cook until crispy!


Pasta


Bring water to a rapid boil, add salt (optional). Add pasta and stir, returning to rapid boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally. Drain well.


To Assemble


While still hot, plate pasta. Arrange two crispy scrapple waffle atop the pasta; then, cover with marinara sauce. Top with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Place under broiler until cheese is melty. Remove from broiler and place an apple potato pancake on top, adding a small amount of additional marinara, then top with desired amount of shaved parmesan cheese. Serve while hot!
