Garlic, Eggs, and Pasta

Garlic, Eggs, and Pasta is a dish I have been making for almost 20 years now. If you don’t have a lot in your pantry, I bet you can make this dish. You only need a few simple ingredients: dry pasta, garlic, eggs, Parmesan cheese, and a bit of olive oil. This dish I orginally saw on the Frugal Gourmet show years ago. Jeff Smith said this would have been a dish that the ancient Romans would have eaten. If you are looking for a meatless dish, or one that is simply inexpensive to make, this is the ideal dish for you.

What I really like about this dish, is that it takes no time to make, by the time you boil your pasta, the meal is practically done. You may want to try variations on this dish, you could add some fresh herbs, or even bits of left overs you already have in your refrigerator.

    This was one of Frank Sinatra’s favorite to whip up after a late night!

    I just made this for dinner along with some garlic bread and blanched Brocholli for sides. Everyone loved it and infact were fighting for more. I added some dried herbs too. Thanks for such a simple recipe.

    Yum! I like to do this with either a raw egg opened on top of the just out of the pot hot pasta or a poched egg. Anyway you do it, it’s just plain good!

    Yum, an almost-carbonara (a food I adore so much I should really have it tattooed somewhere on my person). I love this with sauteed mushrooms as an add-on too.
