Pasta with Butter and Cheese

If anyone has Windows 8 and hasn't opened up the Bing Food and Drink App you need to NOW!!! I love this app and usually spend my lunch hour flipping through all the articles and recipes that get updated daily (during the work week and occasionally on weekend)

As I was reading an article about NASA using 3D printers ( Click. Print. Eat - By Leah Eskin -Chicago Tribune - ‎Monday‎, ‎January‎ ‎13‎, ‎2014) as a possible new space food option the article was ended with a recipe for easy homemade pasta with cheese and butter and I couldn't stop thinking about it all night

Luckily Eddie had a work event so I was only making dinner for me so of course I had Pasta with Butter and Cheese but the easy way

Pasta with Butter and Cheese

-Pasta (I used Whole Wheat Spaghetti)
-Parmesan Cheese

1) Cook Pasta according to directions
2) Drain Pasta and cover in butter and Cheese

As an FYI here is Leah Eskin's Recipe from the article

Angel Hair Pasta

-1/2 cup flour
-1 egg
-1 pinch salt
-Parmesan cheese

1) Mix: Heap flour on a work surface. Scoop out a well in the center. Whisk together egg and salt; pour into the well. With fingers or fork, pull flour into egg, achieving a ragged dough.
2) Knead: Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Pat into a rectangle. Wrap in plastic and let rest, 45 minutes.
3) Roll: Pass the dough through the widest roller setting of a pasta machine. Fold the dough in thirds, like a letter. Pass an open end through the widest setting again. Repeat several times, smoothing dough. Now step down the settings, passing the dough once through each, without folding, letting it stretch. Work to the next-to-thinnest setting.
4) Slice: Dust dough lightly with flour. Pass through the machine's angel-hair attachment, slicing it into fine ribbons. Lacking attachment, roll up the dough into a cylinder and slice crosswise with a sharp knife into fine strands.
5) Dry: Pick up the heap of noodles and curl into a little nest. Let dry, 15 minutes or more.
6) Melt: Melt some butter in a skillet. Keep warm.
7) Boil: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Nestle nest into a strainer basket. Lower into the water and boil tender, less than 1 minute. Lift basket, letting water drain away. Drop noodles into the buttery skillet. Toss with tongs. Heap onto a plate. Shower with cheese.
