My New-Fangled Spaghetti...(brown butter spaghetti)

After reading a recipe for Toasted Spaghetti with Clams in the Feb Food & Wine magazine, I was inspired to experiment. I thought I would share the results for those interested.

*Funwithfood's "Brown Butter" Spaghettini*

Instead of boiling the spaghetti in water as usual (actually, spaghettini), I broke the noodles in 2" pieces and sauteed the uncooked noodles in olive oil and lots of butter until starting to brown. Next I added minced garlic to the bottom of the pan and sauteed for 1 minute, then added chicken broth (instead of clam juice); covered and boiled until the liquid was completely absorbed, then added salt to taste. It was *really* delicious--way better than boiling in water!

(I served the noodles along side meatballs in a mushroom--herb sauce.
