If you’ve never had it, mizithra cheese is a semi-sharp goat and/or sheep’s milk cheese which contains a certain, distinctive sourness that makes it perfect for topping pasta.
Pasta like the big, thick bucatini strands the Yassou Greek Grille Cafe (whew!) uses to make their Greek spaghetti.
The recipe is simplicity itself, consisting of simply pouring browned butter over al dente pasta and giving it a liberal sprinkling of cheese and cracked pepper. Those flavors of slightly nutty, sour and sharp meld uniquely with the toothsome tubes, making each bite the very essence of simple, soulful satisfaction. Garnish with a little gyro meat and you have a humongous lunch for one, or a perfect pasta repast for two.
Best of all, the whole enchilada only costs ten bucks.
