: Here is a recipe for the dish which made up the majority of my diet for my last two years of college:

Super-Carbohydrate Trader Joe's Monopoly Pasta


  1. 1 bag Trader Joe's Amber Durum Wheat Cavatappi or Zini pasta (nb. apparently no longer sold)
  2. 1/4 bag Trader Joe's "Il Trio" shredded cheese
  3. 6 slices Trader Joe's Cracked Wheat Sourdough
  4. 1.5 Trader Joe's Roma tomatoes
  5. 1 tbsp Trader Joe's olive oil
  6. Trader Joe's basil (optional)

Boil water. Put pasta in water and cook. While cooking, dice tomatoes. Drain pasta and shake up with olive oil and tomatoes. As needed, put cheese on top and heat in microwave to melt cheese; also toast bread. Shake basil on top (optionally). Alternate between eating pasta on bread and eating pasta not on bread. Serves one, for about two days.

Another popular recipe 'round my place:
