  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 green onion, chopped (I didn't have any)
  • 1/4 cup grated or finely shredded Parmesan cheese, or more to taste



Step 1

Cook pasta in salted water until tender as directed on package.

Meanwhile, in a small 1-qt. saucepan or skillet melt the butter over low heat; when melted add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly so it doesn't brown. Remove from heat and stir in the green onion.

Drain pasta well in a colander then transfer to a serving bowl. Pour the garlic butter over the pasta and toss to coat. Add Parmesan and toss well. Garnish as desired and serve immediately.
