  • Toss hot cooked pasta (see Cook's Note) with olive oil and garlic mixture. Add the parsley, salt, and ground black pepper to taste. Serve with fresh-grated Parmesan cheese.

Cook's Notes:

I cook 8 ounces of spaghetti until al dente and toss with this sauce. You may use 1 teaspoon dried parsley if you don't have fresh.

This tasted FANTASTIC... Just like from a restuarant. I did add some oregano and a spoonfull of butter. My entire family loved this. I made this with "Garlic Chicken" submitted by another person on this site. They were beautiful together. I couldn't have picked a better dish to go with it. Read More

I wanted a non tomato or cream based sauce for my pasta, so I tried this one. I put a little butter in there, and some italian seasoning, added broccoli and green beans and it was awesome! My boyfriend almost never likes the vegetables, but he went back and ate the leftovers! Read More

This was quick easy and tasty. I did add a couple of tablespoons of butter and the next time I make it I'll add a pinch of red pepper flakes too. Definitely a keeper! Read More

I really played with this. I actually sauteed chicken in the garlic (6 or 7 cloves) the spices and olive oil (2/3 c); and then I added fresh veggies (I don't like plain pasta); THEN I added the cheese (1/4 c) and added it to the pasta. Overall a nice meal; had leftovers which were the envy of my coworkers for the next few days. Recipe didn't turn out to be much of a sauce but that was probably my fault.:) Read More

I used hlaf butter & half EVOO & I browned my butter ( heat over med/low heat until it just starts to brown. It will continue to cook some after you pull it off the heat so don't over-do it or it will be burned butter not brown LOL) because I love it's nutty flavor before adding the oil & garlc. I used italian seasoning instead of parsley SeasonAll salt for regular salt & egg noodles instead of spaghetti. My 2 yr old granddaugter didn't care for the garlic but my 10 mo old grandson loved the dish. Thansk for the recipe George! Read More

Good basic recipe. It's a bit misleading to call this recipe Garlic Butter Sauce II as butter is not an ingredient. I usually make my own garlic butter sauce for vegetables which is just that - garlic and butter so thought that I'd try this for a change of pace. I used butter rather than olive oil since I served the sauce with fresh green peas. Because of this I omitted the salt. Good with steamed veggies and and Italian entree. Thanks George! Read More

Waaaaay too much oil. I didn't use all the oil I put in the pan but I did use all the garlic. I recommend using a bit less oil and tossing the pasta in butter before mixing in the oil and garlic. Read More

This is a good basic sauce although the title is misleading because there's no butter or buttery taste in the dish. I tossed the hot pasta with 2 tablespoons of butter before the oil and then also added a dash of red pepper. Read More
