(aka throws things in a pot and calls it dinner, but with sufficient success that she may repeat the method some other lazy evening)

Two eggs and a serving-sized amount of pasta in a pot with cold water, boiled while doing overdue dishes. [All the recipes say to boil the water then add pasta, but it seems to work my way too.]

When almost ready, chopped green stuff (spinach would have been perfect but I had bok choy and that was just fine) and added to same pot until a nice bright green.

Drained water out. Shelled and mashed eggs. Sprinkled on lemon-pepper seasoning. Mixed together.

Ate from the pot. I really like minimising dishes.

I think I shall have an apricot for dessert.

I wouldn't have thought of this, but I think an experiment is coming my way. I too like one-pot meals (he says, palate still fondly lingering over last night's beef casserole with suet dumplings), but my current repertoire of such is a bit limited. Especially on the 'interesting things to do with pasta when completely exhausted' front. Thanks for posting this 'un!

The thing with boiling water before adding pasta is that you can control cooking time and get it al dente. If you don't care about that, then it works from cold.

I also like doing one-pot dishes when I can :-)

...in this case though, I'd be a bit wary of cooking eggshells with food I'm planning to eat. It's not that you don't know where they've been -- it's that you do know :-)

(I assume the boiling time here is sufficient to kill dangerous bacteria, but I think I'd still be a bit squicked...)
