I love to do this with ravioli! Melted butter on top, a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley. That's it and it's so good :)


I'd love to try this some time soon.


Lori Lynn

Your simple ingredients make for a rich blog post!


Simplicity at its best!


Simona, us Greeks love to eat pasta with brown butter and some crumbled feta...a quick comfort food for us.


Grazie per l'adesione, cara e per la bella ricetta.
A presto Ciao


Insieme agli spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino, gli spaghetti al burro sono fra i primi che mi vengono in mente quando penso alla pasta!
Delicious! :)
p.s. ieri il post senza titolo era involontario. Blogger mi ha dato problemi in fase di pubblicazione.
Nessun messaggio criptico quindi ;)


Hi Maryann. Butter and parmigiano are indeed perfect over ravioli, and bring out the complex flavor of their filling.

Hi Paz: this pasta is a nice pick-me-up.

Thanks Lori Lynn.

Indeed, Christine. I hope you managed to get eggs on Thursday. I am rationing mine until this Thursday.

I should try to Greek version, Peter: it sounds good.

Piacere mio, Lenny.

Concordo, Do. Veramente ho pensato che magari era stato blogger a fare di testa sua.


Simona, My kids grew up on this, and still love it today!! Italian comfort food, the best kind, simple and delicious!!


Anche io da bambina mangiavo spesso e volentieri questa pasta dal potere evocativo.
Grazie(e scusa per la richiesta).


what a pure, simple recipe -- sounds delicious.


Pasta al burro e parmigiano is also my children's preference for pasta..
lovely post. :)

Oh, Simona, this post brings back so many family memories for me. Pasta with butter and cheese was the ultimate comfort food growing up. It's utterly simple and utterly delicious.


Hi Marie: your kids and me are on the same wavelength then.

Scusami te, Lenny: avrei dovuto farlo subito.

Thanks Katy.

Hi Laurie, more kids in love with this pasta: it's great to find confirmation of my idea.

Just so, Susan: utterly simple and utterly delicious. I have a couple more of those and will talk about them soon. We'll see if they were brought here as well.


We eat pasta with olive oil and Parmesan all the time... Why have I never made it with butter????


That's just beautiful. I can almost taste and smell it just reading your description.

This pasta dish is so simple how can it not to be good Simona.I'm not sure if I could come up with a dish that I thought had changed my life but there are certainly many that have added to it:D

Simona Carini

I am not sure, Katie, but now that you have received a suggestion, I suspect you will try and make it.

Thanks Lisa.

Looking at dishes for their power is an interesting experience, Valli.


Gran ricetta, noi aggiungiamo anche un po di pecorino stagionato di quello fatto in casanelle lasagne.
ciao Andrea

Simona Carini

Grazie, Andrea. Non ho mai provato ad aggiungere un po' di pecorino. Da ragazzina, di solito ne avevamo in casa, perche' lo compravamo da produttori locali. Dove sono ora, non e' facile trovarlo.
