Garlic Butter Pasta

Ready in 20 minutes


  • 8 ounces dried pasta such as spaghetti, linguine, or any other long or short pasta
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized saucepot, boil water and salt it. Add your pasta, and cook according to the package instructions. When the pasta is cooked, reserve 1 cup of the pasta water and drain the pasta.
  2. In a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat and sauté the sliced garlic very lightly.
  3. Add the hot pasta along with a part of the pasta water, and toss it using kitchen tongs until a sort of thick sauce is coating the pasta. Add the remaining butter and keep on tossing until it melts, and add more pasta water if needed.
  4. Remove from heat, and add freshly grated parmesan cheese and chopped parsley leaves. Toss continuously and season with salt if needed. Serve warm with extra grated parmesan cheese and enjoy!
