I used to make this all the time when I didn't feel like cooking an elaborate lunch. We always called it 'peasant pasta.'


Serves: 4 

  • 180g spaghetti
  • 150g butter
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat a frypan over medium-low heat. Melt butter with garlic very slowly to avoid burning the garlic. Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper and parsley. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper to taste, if desired.
  3. Toss pasta into the frypan until well-coated with butter. Increase heat to medium and cook until pasta is heated through and has absorbed some of the butter. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if necessary. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
