Bow-tie pasta with fried egg and cheese.

As a kid, I did not like eggs, but loved pasta, especially bow-tie («farfalle» in Italian). This was my mother's ingenious way to get me acquainted with eggs: It worked!

Ingredients

150 g farfalle (bow-tie) 2 1/4 cups
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil 10 mL
1/2 tbsp chives, fresh, finely chopped 2 g
2 1/2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 8 g
1/4 cup pasta cooking water 65 mL
2 eggs size large
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. To save time, the pasta and the eggs are cooked at the same time. Start cooking the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, put the olive oil, chives and almost all of the cheese in a serving bowl and set aside in the oven at the lowest setting. Reserve a few spoonfuls of cheese to sprinkle on top of each dish when serving. When the pasta is almost ready, remove the required amount of pasta cooking water and add it to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Melt the butter in a nonstick skillet, then break the eggs into it and cook 2-3 min over high heat until the whites are set. To cook more than 4 eggs, you may need to work with 2 skillets at the same time.
  4. Drain the pasta, pour it into the serving bowl then toss well. Spoon the seasoned pasta into the warmed serving dishes and place one egg on top of the pasta. Sprinkle with the reserved cheese, then serve immediately.

This was a simple and interesting way to serve pasta. I couldn't get chives so just used a finely sliced green onion instead. Also added some garlic powder to the pasta. Will make this one again.
