No-Cook Butter and Parmesan Sauce Pasta

No-Cook Butter and Parmesan Sauce Pasta created by Baby Kato

Only reservations are easier than this! You might ask how can the sauce be no-cook? Mix the ingredients in a heatproof bowl and set it aside to warm to room temperature OR place it over the pasta pot to warm while heating the water, removing once the water starts to boil. All you cook is the pasta. Several years ago I bought a cookbook called “No-Cook Pasta Sauces” by Joie Warner which mysteriously disappeared. My DH just found it behind the bookcase when he started remodeling our kitchen - hurray! Times are a guess-timate until I get my kitchen back.

    Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Kat's Mom. We enjoyed the simplicity of it very much. Quick and easy to make with great texture. I did grind the parmesan, resulting in a nice texture with little grit. I scaled it down for two people, it worked really well. Made as written, the flavor was subtle and fragile, a perfect match for the spicy chicken I served it with. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game 2015.

    Really easy and I love the idea of not "cooking" it. I put it over the boiling water as suggested - brilliant! I used 1/2 c parmesan cheese and still thought it was too heavy on the parmesan taste. I also added a few TBLS of milk to smooth it out - it was a bit gritty without it. I will try this again - but with even less parmesan cheese.
