Simple, easy, delicious. Requires that you cook one serving of some pasta. Double recipe for two servings of pasta. Really great with fresh pasta!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Turn off the burner you just cooked your pasta on.
  2. While you are draining your pasta, mix all ingredients except cheese in your pasta pot over this burner.
  3. (Butter will melt).
  4. Shake excess water off of the pasta, and place back in the pot.
  5. Add parmesan cheese.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Serve immediately.
  8. (Using a cultured butter like Lactancia is much more flavorful than regular butter).

Yummo!! Very good. I added some olive oil as it seemed just a little dry, but very good and nice substitue to heavy cream sauce or anything. Was perfect with my Crockpot Italian Chicken!!

I loved it! I made the following substitutions: lemon juice instead of wine, italian seasoning mix instead of basil, no garlic, and no parmesan cheese. It reminded me of the "Hot and Naked" pasta dish I had in Omaha's Spaghetti Factory restaurant, and was super simple to make. I think even my confirmed tomato sauce on pasta DD will enjoy this, even though she has liked no other white sauce in her entire life! Thanks for such a flavorful, simple pasta topper!

This was good and an easy way to use wine and pasta together. I used salted butter instead of cultured.
