Pasta With Egg, Salt, and Garlic

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by James Elkins

Another very simple Italian recipe, like recipe #154384: piquant, economical, absurdly easy, unusual, and totally, irrepressibly authentic. You can add all sorts of things: I like beans, cubed boiled potatoes, or rosemary.

Everything was going well, but my biggest issue was the garlic. I could only manage the size of a polariton, which is slightly larger than an electron. I have a feeling that this altered the dish. I am trying it again tomorrow with a finer blade, hoping for better results.
