Do you remember having butter pasta as a kid? Creamy butter, a bit of salty parmesan cheese on noodles? It was so comforting! This is the adult version of that.

Why you’ll love this garlic butter pasta:

  • Quick: This garlic butter pasta will only take you 25-minutes to pull together
  • Crowd Pleaser: Everyone will love this recipe. Even the kiddies!
  • Versatile: Add in your fav fresh herbs, veggies, protein, or whatever you want

Ingredient Notes:

Green Onion Butter: This yummy butter will take an additional 15 minutes to make but I promise it’s worth it. It is so delicious you’ll want to spread it all over everything, and it adds a special pop of flavor to this that is different than just boring ol’ butter.

Spaghettini: Found in your pasta aisle, spaghettini is a thinner version of spaghetti. If you can’t find it, regular spaghetti works fine, just cook it to the package directions as it takes a little longer than spaghettini.
