Tonite we drove to NYC for work tomorrow. Most nights like this, I go buy a burrito from the local tacqueria. The burritos are great, and healthy, as I opt for yogurt in place of sour cream in my black bean burrito.
But tonight, after getting a parking spot, I thought, why not see what I have in the fridge and cook something quick?
A quick scan yields frozen peas, eggs, some Pecorino Romano cheese, and pasta. There was some yogurt too, but not much else in the fridge. So I think this is kinda Carbonara.
I cooked the penne pasta, mixed the egg with the grated cheese, drained the cooked pasta, saved some of the cooking water, put the pasta back in the pot, added the cheese-egg mixture, stirred it, added a bit of the pasta water, and some salt. I warmed up the frozen peas in the microwave and dropped them into the mix.
Not bad. I added too much of the pasta water, and it could have used more cheese, but not bad for a Sunday night.
Charlie Pup and Henry were very interested in what i was eating. It was good.
What have you put together lately?
