Simple spaghetti and poached egg

Having nothing interesting in the pantry is a great way to train up my ability to create delicious meals from everyday ingredients. Especially tonight, I was cooking for one and had no meat or veges in the fridge. However, I did find some spaghetti and garlic which was all I needed for a simple garlic spaghetti with olive oil. It tastes better than it sounds…in fact, lots of Italians enjoy cooking their spaghetti this way. I did have a bit of tomato paste leftover so I used that as well for extra flavor. I also had some eggs in the fridge and decided to poach one to accompany the spaghetti. I love poached eggs but don’t really have them that often mainly because you need really fresh eggs that hold their shape, or else you will end up with egg soup..mmm. However, the mental image of runny egg yolk oozing over a glistening tangle of garlic spaghetti was all I needed to take the risk and poach an egg. Overall, it was delicious! and I didn’t even miss the meat. Here’s a picture of what it looked like


And here’s a picture of that glorious egg yolk.. Admittedly, I wanted to have it runnier but accidentally left it in the pot too long. oops. Proof that I have yet to master the skill of multi-tasking
