About this recipe: Spaghetti is simply tossed with butter, garlic and loads of freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese. Pecorino Romano cheese is full flavoured Italian cheese made from sheep's milk, and is the star in this simple but flavourful dish!

I loved this, it was simple to make, the only adjustment i made was i chopped up a few slices of bacon and fried until crispy, then took the pan off the heat and threw in the garlic, butter and cheese, not long after the pasta was ready so i drained and poured on top, mixed well and served!! Very tasty - i have cooked it my way5 times so far... - 25 Apr 2013
