    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  -  23 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  28 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  25 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
