Kaoru: Spaghetti with Fried Eggs

Elaine is right -- you definitely want to embellish some of Bittman's dishes. For this one, a nice pat of butter, leftover bacon, pork jus (from pork shoulder I braised last week), frozen peas, Parmesan and the eggs did just the trick. And with a few generous grinds of black pepper at the table, we had ourselves a nice carbonara-esque dinner tonight. It was really rich, but tasty. Dessert was a half scoop of Haagen Dazs (Five) lemon ice cream, which cleansed the palate.
