  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound cut pasta, like ziti or penne, or long pasta, like linguine or spaghetti
  • 1/2 stick butter (4 tablespoons), cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped mint leaves

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it. When it boils, cook pasta until it is tender but not mushy. Drain pasta, reserving about 1/2 cup of cooking liquid.
  2. Toss pasta in a warmed bowl with 2 or 3 tablespoons cooking liquid, the butter, mint and half the cheese. Taste and adjust seasoning, then serve, passing remaining Parmesan at the table.
