Browned Butter and Mizithra Cheese Pasta

Photo and Recipe from

4 tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup Mizithra cheese; shredded
6 ounces Spaghetti
Cracked pepper

Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions.
While the spaghetti is cooking, heat the butter over medium heat; the butter will froth a bit, and then start to turn a nice golden brown. Let the butter cook until it is a light caramel color. Set aside.
Drain the pasta.
Carefully pour off the butter into a small dish, being careful to leave behind the solids that have settled to the bottom of the pan.
Mix the butter, spaghetti, and most of the cheese (save some to sprinkle on top).
Garnish with remaining cheese and Cracked pepper to taste. YUMMY!
