Bow-tie pasta with fried eggs and cheese.
This is quick and easy. A favorite of young and old . Season the pasta simply with the best olive oil, salt, pepper, chives and Gruyere cheese. Make sure the serving plates are hot.
Bring 3qt. of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook for about twelve minutes.
While the pasta is cooking, put olive oil chives salt and pepper in a bowl large enough to hold cook pasta. When the pasta is ready remove half cup of the cooking water and added to the bowl. Drain the pasta well added to the bowl and toss well.
For the garnish: fry two eggs over easy per person. Spoon 6oz. of pasta onto each plate, sprinkle on a heaping spoonful of cheese and place the two eggs on top of the pasta. Add a little more cheese and pasta and serve with the egg yoke visible. Serve immediately.
