For a period of my life I traveled a lot, slept at least 4 nights out of 7 in a hotel, traveled far and wide, tried restaurants, tasted products, visited producers.

And all this I did alone.

It wasn't traveling that strangely me, I do it willingly, but the thing I was least comfortable with was eating alone.

In doing so, I discovered that, especially for those who prepare the dreaded dinner alone, eating gives its joys even in front of a deserted table.

But what is cooked in these cases of misanthropy or necessary isolation? Italians, people with recidivist spaghetti, have a tendency to limit their inventiveness to a dish of plain pasta, but in our opinion it can be done better.

My solo dinner involves:

Hamburger

Singleness can also be cool and therefore don't forget the gastromode. In times when everything is transformed into hamburgers and meatballs, we can go at full speed.

Do it with heifer, with cod, with tuna, with roast beef from the day before, even with tofu or legumes.

Omelette

Rude in his manner but sincere in substance, he is more or less the Callahan of the pan. They range from edible flowers and courgettes in spring, to eggplants in summer, potatoes, mushrooms and artichokes to close the cycle.

There are those who love it even with leftover pasta but be careful: it is a sure shock if you don't belong to the category of sgamati at the table.

Noodles

In times of Bric dictatorship, our bachelors pantry (occasional and otherwise) must also make an exotic turn.

Arm yourself with curiosity and steal your squeaky wrinkled nose, on the one hand, and mummy's juices, on the other: it's time to try something new. Rice noodles are a godsend if you cook them with zucchini, surimi and soy sauce.

Risotto

Getting to grips with the kitchen alone means distancing oneself from the maternal kitchen, but also knowing how to deal with a dose of healthy nostalgia when the time comes. Risottos and soups are the embodiment of this.

With pumpkin and taleggio, risotto is a racy cuddle. With cuttlefish ink and a spoonful of pesto it becomes refined. With black cabbage and pecorino romano, a true enjoyment of a lone wolf, intense and sepulchral.

If you are from the party that "Pasta is fine, but Italy is not just pizza, spaghetti and mandolin", tell us which is the right menu to enjoy in front of a table set according to you, with no one around.

It is also worth cooking something hideous and rejecting the dish with strong self-reproach.
