Simple Italian Dish - Easy Spaghetti

I am always looking for recipes that 1) use very few ingredients, 2) take little time to prep and cook, and 3) taste good. Today, I made a simple spaghetti with butter, garlic, pepper, and parmesan cheese.

Butter Garlic Spaghetti

1/2 lb. whole wheat spaghetti
2 c. water
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 or whole stick butter
1/2 Tbsp. ground black pepper
1/2 c. or handful of shredded parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. chopped garlic in a jar, or 4 cloves

For spaghetti:
In a medium saucepan, boil water with salt to a rolling boil. Add pasta and simmer on low-medium for 7 minutes. Drain half of the pasta water. Keep pasta in half of the water until sauce is done.

For sauce:
Slice stick of butter and bring to a boil in a large skillet/pan. Stir in pepper. Once boiling and bubbling (not burning), add pasta and pasta water to pan. Stir in garlic, and continue to boil for 5 minutes. Shut off heat and add parmesan cheese. Toss with tongs and plate. Enjoy!
