I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Brown Butter Pasta
...in your mind.

Brown Butter Pasta

With crazy Mizithra cheese


  • 16 ounces fettuccine - or pretty much whatever shape your heart desires (or whatever you have)
  • 8 ounces butter
  • 3/4-1 cup grated Mizithra cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • Chopped parsley to garnish


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions
  2. While it cooks, starts melting the butter a couple tablespoons at a time over medium heat, adding more as it melts
  3. Continue until all the butter has been added, stirring constantly until it gets foamy, then starts to turn a golden brown
  4. Drain the pasta (but keep back about a cup of the pasta water) and add pasta to the pan with the butter - you can kill the heat
  5. Start adding the cheese, about a 1/4 cup at a time, mixing really well as you go - you can also start adding the reserved pasta water to make it as smooth or creamy as you like - for what it's worth, I like this not creamy
  6. Garnish with parsley and serve
