- Serves: 4-6 servings
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
- 1 lb. Dried Spaghetti
- 1 1/2 c. Freshly Grated Parmesan
- 1 tsp. Freshly Ground Pepper
- 2 tbsp. Butter
- Salt, to taste
- Grated Parmesan, for serving
Cook spaghetti according to package directions in heavily salted water. While spaghetti cooks, heat butter until melted in a large sauce pan. Add about 1 cup of pasta water to butter; raise heat to high so water comes to a hard boil. Gradually stir in grated parmesan cheese, and continue reducing until a thin sauce forms.
Drain pasta and stir into sauce. Stir in ground black pepper, then allow pasta to finish cooking in sauce. Season to taste with salt and additional black pepper if desired.
To serve, top with plenty of freshly grated parmesan.
