Easy Creamy Italian Pasta

pasta2This was such an easy dish to prepare and tasted awesome – great for a rushed lunch or dinner!  My nieces and husband loved it, and I was definitely impressed with how good it tasted.  You could even make the Italian dressing mix yourself with a copycat recipe (there’s one here).  I found the recipe on pinterest, but the link had been removed; fortunately the caption had all of the instructions.  I didn’t have heavy cream on hand, so I upped the butter and used milk instead (the recipe called for 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup cream).

Creamy Italian Pastapasta

  • 1 box of farfalle pasta
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 packet Italian Dressing mix
  1. Cook pasta following the directions on the package and drain.
  2. Add the butter to the pot and let it melt, then return the pasta to the pot.
  3. Add the milk, parmesan, and seasoning packet and mix well.
  4. Serve as soon as you can while it is still warm and creamy – if its going to sit on the stove for a while, you might want to add a few extra tablespoons of milk.
