Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the instruction on the package.

For a regular spaghetti I boil the water with 2 tsp salt in the pot.  Once the water starts to boil, I place pasta in the pot.  Stir the pasta.  After 6-10 minutes, I drain the pasta and wash it.  I put some butter or olive oil in the pot and then add pasta to it.  I  mix it all together.

When pasta is ready, place it on the plate, add your sauce on top, sprinkle the dish with parmesan cheese.
