Simple Spaghetti Dish

A great simple meal or late night snack for anyone on a budget, and so simple you won’t even need to print it out. Spaghetti is preferred, but any pasta will do. Add as much butter, salt, and pepper as you like. My siblings and I (Bird) ate this often growing up as a quick meal to cure the munchies, especially if there wasn’t much in the pantry. It’s also great for college kids, etc. ,)
