Spaghetti with butter and parmesean cheese has been a long standing favorite in our house, but this surpasses it by far. The garlic adds a really nice touch, kind of a slight hint of extra taste in the back ground. I wouldn't normally use this much butter or cheese when I make this, but I did this time and boy was I surprised how much better it was. The cheese and butter get gooey and make a sort of sauce. My daughter and I will have this as a full meal when it is just the two of us, but will also make a great side dish to chicken. Thanks Paula, you improved on a dish I already loved.

This is very good. The only thing I did differently was use the butter to saute the garlic before tossing it with the pasta. I prefer a mellower flavor then you get with raw garlic. Adding a little bit of white onion to the saute adds a little sweetness, too. I found this recipe worked well with Parmesan cheese as well.

We really liked this dish, but it is a very good thing that we both ate it - crazy garlic breath! Coming from two garlic lovers, we found this dish to have way too much garlic in it, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic is plenty. As well, you could easily reduce the amount of cheese to say...2/3 cup. We will definitely make this again, but reduce the amount of cheese and garlic. I made this again, reduced the amount of cheese and garlic - and when I drained the pasta, I left a small amount of pasta water clinging to the noodles, made the sauce even creamier!
