  • Cooking Skill level: Easy  
  • Cooking time:  35 minutes
  • Taste Impression:   Butter, cheesy. You will never go back to eating plain pasta again!

 The Parmesan Cheese Pasta is a recipe near and dear to my heart. This is one of my late Aunts recipe, she was one amazing home cook. I always had such a wonderful time getting to be with her in the kitchen.  She would tell me stories and give me advice while preparing some of the most delicious meals I’ve ever had.  One of her best cooking tips to me was ‘always use enough butter’ 🙂 I miss her dearly and think of her often when I am making this pasta recipe. 

If you don’t like butter or cheese then this is not the dish for you.  The butter not only adds loads of flavor but keeps the paste from sticking together.  There are only 4 ingredients, and the great thing is It’s only a few more than your normal pasta.  Come with me as I show you one of my memory lanes.
