One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow
There is something so elegant about this dish that it’s hard to imagine how a person could not love it. It’s spaghetti with a fried egg on top and that, my friend, is all she wrote. If you are feeling very chi-chi you could add some grated cheese. You probably shouldn’t skip the pepper. And you want the egg sunny side up so, when you cut it, the oozy yolk makes a sauce for the pasta. Forget the bacon; carbonara is a mug’s game. No need to wear Dior to dinner—this dish is already sophistication on a plate.
