Excellent! The only change I would suggest is to cook the butter until a caramel brown, let sit up to 4 mins to let separation occur, and strain the butter through a strainer lined with a paper towel for perfect browned butter.

I'm going to make this tonight for Valentine's Day. Trader Joes sells the Mizthra cheese in plastic tubs and it's pretty inexpensive.

This is the famous dish which legend tells us was eaten by Homer while writing his epics. Mizithra cheese is a Greek cheese made from goats milk and is semi-hard. It can be difficult to find and many cheese purveyors will not be familiar with it. Find a local Greek store and they can get it, normally at a very affordable price. Note the recipe says to add the cheese to taste. The recipe is very versatile, add saute'd mushrooms or substitute olive oil for very simple changes. Excellent as a side dish or light meal. Much better than those noodle dishes in a bag available at the supermarket.
