Restaurant Widow

Dinner: March 18, 2010

This dinner for one brought to you by the serendipitous discovery of leftover cooked pasta, a conveniently open jar of Poblano Farm pasta sauce, the end of a log of olive butter, and a whisper of freshly grated Pecorino Romano. And then (as a wise woman once said), “we crack an egg on top.”

Fried pasta with egg is one of my favorite things to eat when I’m dining alone, and it was just what I needed to help me feel a little less blue. I promise to try a little harder once I’ve got the fridge and pantry re-stocked this weekend.

    I don’t know about trying harder, that looks great!

    I always like using my “single” dining nights on foods my S.O. doesn’t particularly enjoy. Wishing you the best!

  2. I tend to have this sort of thing a lot for solo lunches, it makes me feel like I’m doing something nice for myself. Wish I had a log of olive butter in the fridge…

  3. I like the ‘whisper’…very nice.

    I also like dinners for me. Somehow blissfully self indulgent, no matter what the menu.

  4. I’m a huge fan of cooking for oneself when cooking on my own and indulging in things I otherwise wouldn’t eat if with the husband. I love this dish–I’m not big on fried eggs and I would add a poached egg instead–but it’s all about easing into a transition. Maybe it’s not ideal to the high standards you set for yourself, but it looks phenomenal all the same!
