Spaghettini noodles tossed with garlic and butter. Perfect for most Italian dishes where the main course deserves all the attention!

Although this is good with butter, it's even better with olive oil. Give the oil a try and then add some parmesean cheese to top. MMMM Read More

easy; good but bland. Added parmesan and salt-was much better. Also can cut butter at least in half. Read More

I enjoyed this recipe alright the first time I made it by following the directions perfectly. The next time I made it I added tomatoes mushrooms and basil to the butter and garlic and sauteed them all together. Much tastier that way. I am going to make it this way again for dinner tonight.

This just happens to be my favorite way to eat pasta. On days when I need extra zip in my life I like to add a few red pepper flakes and of course coarse black pepper. Thanks for reminding me. I just might have this for dinner. Read More

My favorite comfort food - I make this all the time. I do use a little more garlic and probably not as much butter. I also throw in a little parmesan and some cajun seasoning in when I toss everything together. Perfect side dish when you have a fancy main course. Read More

Yummy dish that uses ingredients most people already have. My husband and I added more garlic and used less butter as per someone else's suggestions. We also added some fresh rosemary ground black pepper and a little cajun seasoning. Delicious. Will definitely make again! Read More

I added a pick sweet steamer bag to this recipe (chicken with summer vegetables). It was wonderful! I added some extra virgin olive oil to the butter to add to its flavor. Will absolutely make again! Read More

Hahahaha! I ate this in college when I was too broke to buy much of anything else. I didn't realize back then that it had a "fancy name" but I still make it to this day - especially when hubby is out of town and I'm on my own for dinner. Just make sure you use your napkin for a bib! Delish and simple! Read More
