My mother has been making this dish for as long as I can remember. Lots of rosemary and garlic - what more could you ask for?

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over low heat. Add the onions; cook and stir until they turn a deep brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic, and cook for 2 minutes, until fragrant. Mix in the chicken stock and rosemary, and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook until reduced by 1/3, about 8 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti pasta, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain, then add noodles to the sauce in the skillet. Stir in the remaining butter and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Serve in a large bowl family style, or place about 1 cup of pasta in a large mug or small bowl. Insert a dinner fork in the center of the pasta and twirl the fork around, holding the mug steady. The pasta will wind up tighter and tighter as you turn. Remove the fork and immediately turn the pasta out onto a dinner plate or shallow bowl. Garnish with extra cheese and rosemary sprigs.

I went out to the garden to get fresh rosemary. This is the first time I have planted it or used it in a recipe. I must admit when chopping it is very fragrant. I must admit I really loved this dish. I did use Bow Tie pasta also. If your onions didn't turn out you may have under-cooked them. If your cheese clumped or got stringy you didn't stir it in fast enough. Also adding the cheese should be done after pulling off the heat. Read More

We did not like this. I followed the directions exactly but I think the amount of rosemary was too much! Read More

This was FANTASTIC. I followed the recipie but used soy butter instead of real butter(my daughter has food allergies) dried rosemary instead of fresh and bow tie pasta. When I was making the sauce I thought I may have used too much garlic and then I thought the sauce would be too runny but when I mixed it with the pasta everything was perfect! NO LEFTOVERS!!!

I loved this! Easy to make a lot of it at once and very tasty. My boyfriend and his roommate really liked it! I used dried rosemary though and would use fresh next time. I also added some fresh oregano and parsley. If you wanted to make a lighter version I felt the last two tablespoons of butter were unnecessary as the mixture of onions and stuff was enough to fully coat the spaghetti. I'll try wil olive oil next time too. Read More

This recipe was a huge hit! My friends said it was restaurant quality! I did change a few things thought. I used garlic powder instead of cloves and it turned out fine. I also added chicken. I cut it up into bite sized pieces and cooked it most of the way through then added it when I added the chicken broth (I used canned Swansons-I'm such a cheater!) Read More

Definitely tasty and easy to make! I prepared as written with two additions: 1.)I added about 1.5 lbs chicken breast. I diced it and rubbed it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I added the chicken with the stock and rosemary. 2.) I added about a tablespoon of lemon juice as the sauce was reducing, which really rounded out the flavor! The dish was very rich and enjoyable, but I would agree that it doesn't translate well to leftovers, so make it when it can all be eaten in one sitting. Read More

This was good but not fantastically good. I added an extra clove of garlic halved grape tomatoes and a splash of white wine. Quick and easy great rosemary taste. I'd make it again and judging by my husband's FOUR servings he'd like it again. Read More

Not only does it taste good but it smells amazing while cooking. My husband's band member's kept commenting on the good smells coming from the kitchen. One tip though only make what you can eat in one sitting. The pasta dries out quite quickly which bothered me when eating as leftovers.. Read More
