  • 8 ounces spaghetti

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional

  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, garlic and red pepper flakes over medium heat until the butter has melted. Cook, whisking constantly, until the foam subsides and the butter begins to turn a golden brown, about 4-5 minutes, skimming foam as necessary.

  3. Remove from heat. Stir in pasta and Parmesan until well combined, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  4. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
