This is made a lot mainly for lunch paired with a vegetable and fruit. My young kids like it and it's simple. Instead of just garlic we sprinkle on tiny bit of Paula Deen's house seasoning.

AWESOME! Make the pasta fresh and reserve some pasta water to mix in! Easiest and best simple homemade side dish!

This was so good! I used some basil garlic butter I found in the freezer along with some olive oil. Wow, am I glad I found that! Between the the infused butter and the fresh parm, it was a winner. So easy and so tasty. I'll be making this often. I love pasta with simple ingredients. The pasta I used was mini fusili (?sp) Any pasta would work. It just seemed better with a smaller and shorter pasta. I may have to have just a little bit more before bed which means no left overs for breakfast. Darn! Stupid, simple and amazing. :)

Yum, this is one of those 'essential basics' dishes that we often don't even think about :) I used a healthy margarine and lower fat parm, and also added a bit of shredded romano cheese that i had on hand from another recipe. Thanks for sharing this, i know this is going to be made many times :)

Lovely, pasta, quick and easy to make. With subtle flavoring. It was excellent. We enjoyed it very much. I served it mixed together with Tuscan Peas. What a great combination it was. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe, which I will make again. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game 2015.

Absolutely the best, simple and quick. Followed the recipe as listed. I used fresh grated parm. Will make often as side dish.

I had a casserole full of leftover whole wheat rotini, and this was a perfect way to have dinner on the table in three minutes flat. What's funny is that I have added all these ingredients to leftover pasta after it's been heated, but I'd never put them in with the pasta before heating. What a difference it made. The pasta came out tasting creamy and well-put together; the ingredients all working together to make an excellent whole.

One note: I did not measure the ingredients--instead, I just tossed in what seemed right. Thanks, 3KillerBs!
