Creamy Parmesan Spaghetti

Creamy Parmesan Spaghetti is just 6 ingredients and one pan!  It is a delicious quick and easy meal that the entire family will go crazy over!  


Hey it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb back to share one of my favorite go-to busy weeknight meals with you! You can’t go wrong with spaghetti but I’m not a big fan of red sauce and ground beef – gasp! So this is my preferred way to enjoy a big bowl of spaghetti!

You won’t believe how easy this recipe is with just 6 ingredients, plus it only takes about 20 minutes to prepare and doesn’t dirty up a bunch of pans and pots. Garlic, butter, parmesan, and pasta – doesn’t get better than this right?!

    Can you please suggest to me what I could use in place of the heavy cream in the recipe? Could I put chicken and a vegetable in it as well to make it a complete meal?
