Spaghetti with pancake in my way

Lately, the dishes "My Way", go very fashionable and since "My Way" I cook almost everything, so today I decided to write it in the name of the recipe so as to be in line with the Times… The pancake is a typical Sicilian dish that has its roots in the peasant tradition that used seasonal products to bring the family together in front of a full-bodied dish. Excellent as a side dish is also used as a condiment for satisfying pasta dishes.
