Parmesan Bow Tie Pasta

pasta plate

Summary: My family loves this dish and best of all I love how easy and cheap it is to make.

I’m not sure why, but even though this recipe germinated in my brain for quite some time I didn’t actually start feeding it to my family until 2 years after I came up with it.

If you’d like a healthier version of this dish try using whole grain bow tie pasta  and organic butter as an alternative.


  • 1 box bowtie pasta
    3 tablespoons butter
    parmesan cheese (in the can, the kind you eat with spaghetti)
    2 tablespoons garlic salt


  1. Boil a medium sized pot of water
    Dump in bowtie pasta
    Cook for 12 minutes (pasta should be a little hard)
    Strain pasta
    Add butter and garlic salt
    Dump in tons of parmesan cheese.
    Stir and serve with French bread and salad

Cooking time (duration): 20
