8 oz spaghetti noodles
7 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 tablespoons oyster or fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
Green onion, thinly sliced, for serving (optional)
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
While noodles cook, infuse the butter:
Heat butter, olive oil, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Let butter cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Garlic shouldn’t brown; keep heat low.
Meanwhile, whisk together the oyster or fish sauce, sugar, and soy sauce. Once garlic has cooked, increase heat to medium-high and stir in soy sauce mixture.
Let cook 30 seconds, then add noodles and parmesan cheese and toss to coat.
Serve with green onion and more parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy!
