Directions:
Directions:
Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
Drain in colander.
While spaghetti is draining, in pot you cooked spaghetti in, melt the stick of butter and wait until it browns and you can smell a nutty aroma. Be careful not to burn.
Return spaghetti to pot and toss until strands are coated.
Season with salt and pepper, and pour any excess melted butter over servings.
You can use more butter if a stick isn't enough!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Use this like you would rice or potatoes.

The way I usually make this is with whole wheat spaghetti. I also reduce this recipe since it's usually just Jack and me. AND I love this best with a good glug of nice balsamic vinegar (we like Trader Joe's "Balsamic Vinegar of Modena") in the butter (step back and be careful if butter is hot), and mix this before tossing spaghetti. I've also added chopped fresh tomato and basil. This is a very easy dish and good for company too!
