I make this all the time- except without any butter or "butteresque" product. Instead I use fresh chopped garlic! It's delicious! If you like the buttery texture, add some olive oil to saute garlic. Also, try adding a little spice (like chopped chili peppers) for a nice kick to your tastebuds and metabolism!
