Simple Pasta With Butter Sauce

Recipe by John Skrable

Never mind the butter sauce. Whatever is your preference. If you are preparing a butter sauce, I think this is an excellent way to prepare the pasta.

Simple and tasted pretty good. If you're looking for something really buttery, this recipe is it, but I find that I like it with a lot less. Just enough to coat the pasta.
