Category: Pasta, Italian

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Spaghetti
  • 1 tb Butter
  • 1/3 c Olive oil
  • 5 Green onions; diced in 1/2"
  • -pieces
  • 1/4 ts Red pepper flakes
  • 2 tb Garlic; chopped
  • 1/2 c Parmesan cheese; freshly
  • -grated
  • 2 tb Parsley; fresh, chopped


Boil at least 3 quarts of water in a large pot. When it boils, add 1
tablespoon salt. Add the spaghetti, cook to the al dente stage.
Place 1 tablespoon butter in a mixing bowl, and place it near the sink.
Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet. When hot add the green onions and
red pepper flakes. As soon as the onions have softened, add the garlic.
Cook only untill the garlic begins to turn golden. Remove from heat at
once. (This process should take no more than 5 minutes. If the pasta is
cooked before the onions and garlic are ready, add a cup of cold water to
the pasta to stop it's cooking, and remove from the heat.)
Ladle 2 tablespoons of pasta-cooking water into the mixing bowl with the
butter. Drain the pasta in a colander and immediately dump it into the
mixing bowl. Toss to coat with the butter, then add the oil and
onion/garlic mixture. Toss again. Add the cheese and toss. Salt and pepper
to taste, add the parsley, then toss once again.
Suggested Wine: Zinfadel or Barbera
