Mizithra Cheese and Browned Butter Pasta

Oh yeah baby. This one rocks - and it's sooooooo easy. I was talking with a friend about cheese and Mizithra came up. It made me remember The Old Spaghetti Factory's Mizithra Cheese and Browned Butter Pasta - yummmm.
Mizithra Cheese and Browned Butter Pasta
2 sticks butter (1 cup) - you have to use real butter
0.4lbs Mizithra Cheese, shredded finely
1/2 lb Spaghetti noodles

Cut the butter into 6 - 8 pieces and bring to a boil over med-high heat. Once the butter starts to boil - stir frequently. It will start to rise and foam. Once it stops foaming, cook until it's a dark caramel color (and the smell will make you want to bathe in it!)

Turn off the burner and let it sit for a minute. Strain into a seperate bowl. Seperate pasta into your serving bowls. Spoon butter over each bowl of pasta and top with Mizithra cheese.

*Remember - a little butter goes a long way.

Pardon my French, but - can I get a HELL YA?
