Pasta is my guilty pleasure. It's the one ingredient I use more than any other. This recipe is super quick and so full of flavor. It makes a great side dish or meatless main dish. It goes with so many foods and if you don't have fresh basil, you can always substitute with dried. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
Basil and Garlic Butter Pasta (print recipe)
What you need:
6 oz pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. red onion, diced
2 tablespoons fresh basil, sliced in ribbons
salt and pepper, to taste
shredded parmesan cheese
In a large pot with salted boiling water, cook pasta until al dente. Drain and set aside.
Using the same pot from the pasta, heat the butter and olive oil over medium low to medium heat. Add garlic and onions and saute until tender. Add pasta, basil, salt and pepper and saute for another couple minutes until heated through. Top with parmesan!
