Buttery Garlic Pasta is a super simple make but will become kids favourite. As the name says, cooked pasta is mixed with melted salted butter, minced garlic and Italian seasoning. You can use any pasta of your choice but I used penne pasta.

I sautéed mushrooms in butter with some Italian seasoning and added it to the pasta which is optional. It does add a nice flavour and texture to the pasta.
