You can make this recipe at home, quite easily, all you need is some pasta, butter, garlic, Romano cheese, and some fresh Parsley. You can even prepare this sauce ahead of time, and when you are ready simple cook up some pasta, and reheat the sauce whenever you are ready.
When making this sauce, I suggest you cook this sauce slowly so the raw taste of the garlic cooks out completely. This garlic butter would taste delicious on garlic bread.

Yield: 2 to 3 servings


1/2 pound butter
2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic about 4 to 5 cloves
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese, divided
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 pound dry pasta – prepare according to package directions


In a small pot, melt 1/2 pound butter on low. Do not cook the butter on high heat, it will brown, and then burn. If you burn the butter you will need to restart the recipe. Chop garlic finely, and add to the pot. Simmer the butter sauce on low for at least 20 minutes. You want the raw taste of the garlic to cook out completely. Add about 1 tablespoon of the freshly chopped parsley to the butter sauce and mix well. Add 1/4 cup of the Romano cheese into the butter sauce about 4 minutes before serving.

Cook pasta according to package directions, and drain. In a large bowl combine butter sauce, and the pasta and mix well. Place pasta onto plates, and garnish with remaining Romano cheese and chopped parsley.

Here, the soft, small mozzarella balls are cut in half so they melt sensually throughout the dish of pasta. The combination of the sweet, tangy tomato sauce with the crunchy, buttery pine nuts and soft, oozing mozzarella makes a very special eating experience. This pasta dish is easy and inexpensive to make. It is a dish that is rich in protein and carbohydrates, making it a wonderful one-dish meal.
