1 box of spaghettiSeriously, his quips, comments and musical selections are a fine way to warm an hour of your evening | Go hear the humble Farmer |
2 quarts of water
1 bottle of Ragu, Meatless Spaghetti Sauce
1 green box of Kraft grated Parmesan cheese
Bring two quarts of water to a boil in one of those blue double boiler colander things --- the top one has holes in it. Put in only as much spaghetti as you want to eat right then. Do not break spaghetti. Stand over it and swirl it with your fork --- be careful and spaghetti won't poke out in the little holes. As the bottom part of the spaghetti gets soft, the rest gently sags like a frozen rag into the boiling water. Reduce heat so it doesn't boil over. Set timer for 12 minutes and read Maine Times Personals. "Antique dealer seeks attractive young woman interested in one night stand." "Ornithologist seeks attractive young woman willing to sacrifice everything for a few cheep thrills." Shut off heat, lug boiler over to the sink, lift out top part and slowly dump spaghetti on plate that came from Sicily and bears the inscription: "Ristorante Borgia." Open bottle of Ragu meatless spaghetti sauce and pour just the right amount of cold sauce onto the hot spaghetti. By the time you shake on some Kraft grated cheese the whole thing is room temperature, and you can get the whole business into you in about two minutes standing right there at the kitchen counter by the sink looking out at the apple trees. Do not move feet. Lean to the left and rinse off plate, fork and spoon under the faucet. Double boiler does not require washing. A single man easily finds room to put the cheese and sauce back in the refrigerator because there is nothing else in there but a gallon of skim milk. Leave plate, fork and spoon on the counter because you will use them in another three hours for perhaps the 9,000th time.
