Myzithra, what?

Jan 9, 2010Family Uncaged

We first ate this dish at the Spaghetti Factory in Seattle. If you’d like to always be ready for a quick, amazing meal, buy myzithra cheese at your local grocer (They have it at Kroger), then put it in a ziplock and freeze it. You don’t need much to make this. One small block makes several meals.

Spaghetti a la Homer

3/4 stick butter
2 garlic cloves smashed
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup fresh, chopped parsley
1/2 cup grated myzithra cheese (found in the specialty cheese case; it’s Greek)

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain and place on four plates. Melt butter in saucepan. Add pressed garlic and salt and pepper. Stir butter constantly until brown. (It can burn, so make sure it only browns). Sprinkle cheese and parsley over noodles. Drizzle browned butter over the top. Makes four servings.
