I love that they serve up sourdough bread with garlic butter when you sit down, their sourdough bread is some of the best that I have had recently.

Spaghetti Warehouse Pasta with Garlic Butter

Looking for a meatless dinner? This Pasta with garlic butter that tastes like the Spaghetti Warehouse is a rich tasting meal.


  • 1/2 pound butter
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic about 4 to 5 cloves
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 1/2 pound dry pasta - prepare according to package directions


In a small pot, melt 1/2 pound butter on low. Do not cook the butter on high heat, it will brown, and then burn. If you burn the butter you will need to restart the recipe. Chop garlic finely, and add to the pot. Simmer the butter sauce on low for at least 20 minutes. You want the raw taste of the garlic to cook out completely. Add about 1 tablespoon of the freshly chopped parsley to the butter sauce and mix well. Add 1/4 cup of the Romano cheese into the butter sauce about 4 minutes before serving.

Cook pasta according to package directions, and drain. In a large bowl combine butter sauce, and the pasta and mix well. Place pasta onto plates, and garnish with remaining Romano cheese and chopped parsley.

    We made this last eve and it was extremely good. Added 1 heaping tbl of Italian garlic spread to the butter. It was a nice touch for garlic lovers.

    Nice dish, easy to make with a subtle but yummy flavor! I love that it uses ingredients I pretty much always have on hand.

    • Stephanie Manley

    Is the Spaghetti Warehouse anything like the Spaghetti Factory? I love their Brown butter and Mitzritha (spelling ?) cheese. Do you have that recipe?

  • Mpietrick4

    I made this the other day with penne pasta and it turned out very good! We will definitely make this again!

    As far as Spaghetti Warehouse copy, I disagree with the Romano cheese. I used one Tbs and didn’t add anymore to the finished dish and it was still fairly overpowering. We’ve been eating that garlic butter sauce (added with mushrooms) at SW for over 30 years.

    Made this for dinner last night, family really enjoyed it. Take your time and add the cheese a little at a time and it won’t clump together. Very flavorful and extremely easy!

  • Tricia

    Made this tonight and got great reviews from the whole family. Thanks!

  • Judy

    I made this sauce…and the cheese became extremely gooey and then balled up , when dropped into the butter, garlic parsley sauce. The flavor was good but I must have done something wrong….
    What type of cheese did you use? did it come already shredded, or did you shred it yourself? Sometimes in cheese that is already shredded agents are added to make the texture of the cheese not combine well together
