I made two simple meals recently. Spaghetti with garlic and oil and matzoh brei. My girlfriend, who is Italian, is really good at recommending simple things for us to eat, especially before going out to a show, as we did last night. I am still trying to impress her with my cooking prowess, but she’s more practical. Pasta does not get any easier. Chop and sauté garlic, then pour it over al dente pasta. Add a little more olive oil and a bit of oregano. Serve. This has a feel of a family dish. This is nothing fancy and you would never make this for company. Matzoh brei is easily described as matzoh french toast, but that doesn’t do it justice. The matzoh is broken up, soaked in egg, and fried. Again, this is a simple family meal that is steeped in tradition. And delicious.
