Sometimes I get lazy, and wonder why I put so much effort into cooking. As a resident I have access to the resident lounge AND the physician lounge, so the world is my oyster! If, you know, I want to subsist solely on coffee, generic freezer bagels, cheap mini-muffins, yogurt, and string-cheese.
Of course I could always avail myself of the fine, and highly affordable, cafeteria fare.
Or not. Seriously, who do they think they’re fooling? That is obviously cold spaghetti with marinara sauce. It would help their case if the hot dinner the night before hadn’t been spaghetti with marinara sauce.
I don’t actually eat a lot of spaghetti as a rule. I am a carb-monster, I have no carb control. Given a bowl of pasta I will eat it and and roar, “MORE!”
However, when I do, I find that the best proof against overindulgence is quality ingredients all around. That means real parmesan and a sauce that sings. I am partial to this recipe. It’s a variation on the butter-onion sauce that’s been floating around the interwebs for several years.
