Spaghetti or macaroni with butter

Boil the spaghetti or macaroni until tender (al dente) in salted water do not over cook. When ready turn them into the sieve and drain all the water.
When drained put into a serving dish and add a generous quantity of butter. Then sprinkle with grated cheese and put extra grated cheese for everyone who wishes to add more of the cheese.
This is the simplest form of serving pasta. Especially have seen people use it when unwell and have no appetite for mixture of food types.
