1/2 lb. spaghetti
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup fine dried bread crumbs (Panko works but something homemade would be better)
2 cloves garlic, grated on a microplane
4 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup (or more) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to ab boil. Add the pasta, stir well and cook until al dente.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the bread crumbs and garlic and fry, stirring, until golden (about 4 minutes).
Drain the pasta and return to pot. Add butter and stir until melted. Mix in cheese and breadcrumbs and season with salt and pepper. Toss well and serve immediately.
