3-Ingredient Buttered Noodles

The easiest 3-ingredient buttered noodles recipe ever.

The easiest 3-ingredient buttered noodles recipe ever.

Serves: 4

Prep Time: N/A

Cook Time: 10-12 minutes


  • 1 cup (224g) unsalted butter, cubed

  • 1 lb (453g) spaghetti 

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste optional

  • Flaky salt, to taste optional


  1. Place bucatini in a large pot of boiling water that has been seasoned generously with salt. Cook according to package instructions or until cooked al dente, about 7 minutes. Do not drain the pasta.

  2. While noodles are boiling, to a large saucepan over medium-low heat add half your butter.  Once butter is slightly melted, cut off the heat and wait for your pasta to finish boiling.

  3. Using tongs transfer your cooked pasta directly from the pot of water into your melted butter saucepan.  Don’t worry about pasta water getting into the pan as it helps to emulsify the sauce. Add your remaining butter and begin constantly tossing the pasta while adding a tablespoon of pasta water at a time until your sauce is fully emulsified and slightly thickened.  Ideally you want it clinging to the pasta nicely.

  4. Season to taste with salt, toss again to coat evenly, and serve. Optionally, add flakey salt and freshly cracked pepper.  Be cautious when using flaky salt as it could over salt your dish if it’s already salty enough.

It has become quite easy to prepare any dish, because now on the Internet you can find an endless number of recipes with step-by-step preparation. But if you don’t have the strength or desire to cook something, I would recommend you the store makegoodfood , where you can order delivery of ready-made food and save yourself some time.

This looks so easy and delicious! I love how the recipe uses pasta water to create a Buildnow GG sauce. That's such a clever trick.
