It's rare we take our boy to a fast food joint, but when we do he enjoys it. Moderation I guess

At the moment I'm in the middle of cooking spaghetti carbonara. 20 mins start to finish. Onion. Mushrooms. Bacon. Soured cream, with a bit of cheese mixed in.
I don't know how authentic it is, but it looks like it'll be nice. Probably about 3 quid to feed 3 of us.

No eggs?

I do a healthier version, due to high cholesterol: 2 eggs, small pot of 0% fat creme fraiche, mushrooms, bacon or gammon (without rind, obvs), garlic, oregano. Good stuff, but not quite as good as replacing the creme fraiche with proper cream. Personally I find onions make it too sweet. But yeah, it doesn't take long, and it's fairly cheap.

Why you'd add onions or mushrooms I have no idea.

Beat a couple of eggs, add shitloads of grated parmesan, add the whole lot to pasta that has been added to a pan containing some cubed pancetta fried in a little olive oil with a clove of garlic (take it off the heat to the eggs don't scramble). More grated parmesan on top of the finished dish. That's it. Some Italians add a bit of parsley too but I've never been keen.

Yeah. Or you can keep a bottle of olive oil with a couple of peeled cloves in the bottom. Use that oil for your pasta dishes, or to drizzle on pizza.

Because mushrooms add a bit of texture, and a bit of earthiness which I think enhances the taste. I wouldn't have the parmesan, personally, even if mine wasn't low fat.

Well, it's more exciting than Van Morrison via Richard Thompson, anyway. And less trad.

Bottom line, you can improvise a bit


'cause you've got some food common-sense.

That's true.

It's just a matter of practise really, isn't it? you can throw together something really good, cheaply, in just a few minutes.

Spaghetti Napolitan.

Sounds Italian but its a Japanese-invented coffee shop staple that could not be easier or faster to make. Boil up a few portions of your favorite pasta. In a fry pan sauté a sliced up onion, some thin slices of green pepper, some fresh or canned shrooms and a sliced up sausage or hot dog. (Omit for veggie.) Dump your cooked pasta into the fry pan and for your sauce - hold on to your pearls ladies - tomato ketchup. Mix it all together and serve with Parmesan cheese and Tabasco sauce.

I'm a devoted fast food eater, and I've been reading this thread with dismay.

Man I just ate two chicken biscuits and drank a large coke in the car.
If that ain't culture...!!!

Also, yesterday I threw away some yucky quinoa my wife made and went hungry instead. Where does that put me on the Venn diagram?!

Yummo!

One of my favourite meals is mixing bowtie noodles with raw hamburger and boiling it all in a pot of coca cola.
