Pasta, butter, Parm. Cheese?

A Dear friend of mine went to Venice for his Honeymoon..

He's a Foodie, so I asked Him about the food..

He said, "I had a lot of great food, but the best was Spagheti, butter, and Cheese"

I thought, You've got to be joking..but now I met a Greak Friend who says, His Mother made this, Brown the Butter first..

I want to try this, but the recipes I saw are All Over..

Melt the butter? Don't? Brown? add Herbs? Basil, or Sage or even Nutmeg?

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

I often make fresh pasta with browned butter, a bit of crushed garlic and shavings of parmesan. Delicious!

Make it to your taste. Italian and Greek families use a butter and cheese combo on pasta. Some add garlic, herbs and different kinds of cheese.
I prefer using fresh pasta since it tastes much better than dried when using simple sauces.

We often use a brown butter and fresh sage sauce for butternut squash ravioli.

You let it go until it starts to brown. We do it in a saute pan over med-high heat. You have to be careful as it will go from brown to burnt quickly.

That is alfredo sauce, according to Mario Batali
Brown butter would be even better!

I love pasta and butter, cheese or no cheese, herbs or no herbs. I've been eating it since I was a kid.

+1, enything frsh tastes better. But even store bought noodles taste great when served like that. I love it. Do it quite often.

You may be interested in this excellent recipe from our jusnikki. The butter could be browned if you want it that way, but the recipe as written is remarkable and I've made it many, many times with wonderful results.
