Units: US | Metric
- 1Cook the pasta in well-salted water according to the instructions on the package.
- 2While the pasta is cooking, grate your mizythra (also spelled myzithra). Make sure you have gotten the white, rather dry, crumbly variety! Use either a microplane or the fine grating on a box grater, not a coarse grating. Set aside.
- 3Drain the pasta and return to the warm pan.
- 4Add the butter and toss until melted and the pasta is coated.
- 5Add the mizithra, garlic and red pepper flakes (if desired). Toss to distribute evenly throughout the pasta.
- 6Serve hot with World-Class Garlic Bread (see recipe).
