1/2 box of your favorite pasta (I like Angel Hair)
1 cup parmesan
1 cup pasta water
3 T butter
Nutmeg (how much ever you like)
Boil pasta as suggested. While the pasta's cooking, grate 1 cup of parmesan into a bowl. You must do this is because if you do it over the pasta you'll never add enough Parmesan. Now this is key. RESERVE 1 CUP of the pasta water and then drain the rest. Melt butter in the pasta pot. Then add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup (depending on what you like) of the pasta water. It will sizzle. Let reduce for a few seconds and grate fresh nutmeg over it. Now add the pasta, toss around, and add the cup of Parmesan. Stir and EAT! DELISH and oh so comforting after a long day at work!
COOKS NOTE: Tonight I am trying out another new item I picked up at Trader Joes it is Lemon Pepper Pappardelle. It is super lemony. I love, love, love lemon but to me it was a FAKE tasting lemon. Not my fav. Did however, love the pappardelle and will try another one on my next trip.
