This recipe is a simple and easy dish to prepare pleasing many different young taste buds. No spices… like no little ‘green things’, no veggies, no sauce; just pasta and parmesan cheese.
1 LB pasta de jour
4-6 quarts of water
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp butter
1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta per instructions on the box in 4-6 quarts of salted water. Strain pasta after desired cook time is reached and add to serving dish. Add butter and Parmesan cheese. Stir until butter melts and is completely blended… delicious!
Tip: Cook extra pasta and add a squirt of olive oil to keep pasta from sticking. Refrigerate stored in a ziplock bag for future meals. Heat by dropping in very hot water for a 10 -15 seconds. Add butter and cheese and serve.
This is a favorite companion dish to a Fenway Frank or two for all those little members of Red Sox Nation.
All you need is a cold glass of whole milk! And maybe a hot roll with butter, no garlic please!
