It was our first Dinner Party in our new house, and my SO's 30th birthday. A doubly special event. I was struggling with a Vegetarian guest, and another guess that would not eat a vegetable if his life depended on it (he is a meat-and-potatoes-hold-the-potatoes kind of guy). I thought this dish would be safest, pasta and cheese. Who doesn't like pasta and cheese? It turned out awesome! I added some mizithra to the mix, which is just what it needed. Also, not sure if it is clear in the instructions, but it is even better if you brown the butter (and use BUTTER, not that margarine stuff)
I can't believe that this dish is rated so high!! I followed the instructions exactly as laid out in the recipe and it tasted awful!! We used top quality cheese, but the dish turned out very greasy and oily and had zero flavour. So be forewarned that if you buy good cheese, you're looking at about $10 and it's just no good.
Growing up, my grandfather always let me eat my spaghetti with just butter. This is a grown up version of that. I think that roasted garlic would definately give it a richer flavor but for me, it was great the way it is written. You could spruce it up with some sauteed spinach-saute it with the roasted garlic maybe. Anyway, this recipe is simple, and with good basic ingredients very good.
Delicious main dish, even better with a few sun dried tomatoes and olives
This is good. I did make a couple changes though. I cut back on the butter (used butter, not marg) because a couple people said it was greasy. And, like a reviewer before me suggested, I used a bunch of roasted garlic (2 big heads actually) It was very simple to make, and turned out well. Pasta, cheese and butter! How can you go wrong? :)
This recipe is a good base recipe... and it's as good as you make it. For the garlic butter, if you use margarine and garlic powder, it's going to taste like margarine and garlic powder... kinda like the frozen garlic bread you get at the grocery. If you want a more upscale flavor, use real butter and minced roasted garlic. A half cup of butter is a LOT of butter, so you might want to cut that back. I only used 2 Tbsp butter and found it to be fine. Also keep in mind you're using a lot of cheese which will release some fat when it's cooked. If just cheese and pasta sounds a little rich (I thought it was) feel free to toss in veggies of your choice. I like artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, onion, spinach, etc. Overall it's a good dish, and a nice change from the same old spaghetti.
This was quite nice, except I would suggest butter instead of margarine (I think it tastes better), and real garlic to enhance the taste.
Reminded my family of macaroni and cheese. They loved it! I will add more garlic the next time.
