DIRECTIONS

  • Cook spaghetti until al dente.
  • Drain spaghetti and leave in colander or drainer.
  • Put butter (and garlic and oregano, if using) into hot pan and put it back on the burner, making sure heat is medium to medium-high.
  • Stirring constantly, cook butter until it's a nice, light to medium brown.
  • Remove pan from heat.
  • Quickly return spaghetti to pan, turning to coat the strands with the butter; the spaghetti should glisten with the light coating of butter.
  • At this point, you can add a bit more butter if you like.
  • Once butter coats spaghetti, add cheese and mix well, so that bits of the mizithra are sticking to the spaghetti evenly.
  • Grind a bit of pepper over the dish and mix again.
  • Serve with extra mizithra and pepper.
