Spaghetti Warehouse Spaghetti with Garlic Butter

Spaghetti Warehouse Spaghetti with Garlic Butter has been a recipe many of you have requested for quite some time now. I had honestly never stepped into a Spaghetti Warehouse until very recently, they have charming restaurants. The Spaghetti Warehouse is a chain of Italian restaurants that serves up delicious food with an old-fashioned atmosphere that you are certain to enjoy.

The Spaghetti Warehouse combined old-world Old Spaghetti Factory Browned Butter and Mizithra Cheese Italian food with fun and festive atmosphere. I love that they serve up sourdough bread with garlic butter when you sit down, their sourdough bread is some of the best that I have had recently.

When making this sauce, I suggest you cook this sauce slowly, so the raw taste of the garlic cooks out completely. This garlic butter would taste delicious on garlic bread.

    This was a pretty good copycat pasta dish you can make at home. I’ve used grated Parmesan-Romano cheese and had issues putting it in the sauce. But it came out pretty decent to have any night. Next time, I’ll make sure I’ll add the sauce in before I serve it so it would be less clumpy.

    My recipe gotten from Old Spaghetti Factory in Des Moines, Iowa called for water, basil, garlic, parsley and Parmesan. The problem is I think my recipe got discarded when I was caring for my husband and my girls discarded all of the loose sheets in my recipe binder. They were helping to move us, but oh, I lost so many regularly used recipes. Does anyone have this recipe. It was gotten in the late sixties. Thank you

    Oh gosh this brings back memories of the 60’s when I was a teenager and my Dad used to cook a very similar dish that we all loved to eat. The only problem was he always seemed to cook it when I had a date that night and could not eat it! Seems like he put more garlic in his dish, but it was really good.

    We made this last eve and it was extremely good. Added 1 heaping tbl of Italian garlic spread to the butter. It was a nice touch for garlic lovers.

    Nice dish, easy to make with a subtle but yummy flavor! I love that it uses ingredients I pretty much always have on hand.

  6. Country Girl

    Is the Spaghetti Warehouse anything like the Spaghetti Factory? I love their Brown butter and Mitzritha (spelling ?) cheese. Do you have that recipe?

    As far as Spaghetti Warehouse copy, I disagree with the Romano cheese. I used one Tbs and didn’t add anymore to the finished dish and it was still fairly overpowering. We’ve been eating that garlic butter sauce (added with mushrooms) at SW for over 30 years.

    Made this for dinner last night, family really enjoyed it. Take your time and add the cheese a little at a time and it won’t clump together. Very flavorful and extremely easy!

  9. Judy

    I made this sauce…and the cheese became extremely gooey and then balled up , when dropped into the butter, garlic parsley sauce. The flavor was good but I must have done something wrong….
    What type of cheese did you use? did it come already shredded, or did you shred it yourself? Sometimes in cheese that is already shredded agents are added to make the texture of the cheese not combine well together

    This is almost like the spahetti with hot and naked sauce that I make from Spaghetti Works. Awesome recipe. A must try for those who like garlic and of course, butter!
