Recipe: Buttery Garlic Spaghetti with Parmesan and Basil

This recipe for Buttery Garlic Spaghetti with Parmesan and Basil barely qualifies as a recipe…. it’s so easy to make… it’s so delicious that I just had to share this with you.

I love pasta…. I must have hundreds of pasta recipes… we have a pasta night about once a week…. sometimes we keep it simple…. Warren will have his with tomato sauce and I will butter my spaghetti with a little garlic and chopped basil…finished off with parmesan cheese… and I’m in heaven…. It’s absolutely delicious!

Fresh chopped basil is best… but sometimes I do use the dried if I don’t have any fresh in the fridge. If you don’t like basil you can substitute chopped fresh parsley (or dried)….

This is also delicious if you have left over chicken ….just reheat it and chop it and add it in…. a terrific meal in minutes… a great weeknight meal.

This recipe is for 4 servings…if you are making less servings… adjust the ingredient amounts to your taste.

I love a simple pasta dish. Can be so elegant or informal. Depends on the plate it's served in.
