Burnt butter over spaghetti is a staple in most Greek homes. It is a simple and easy dish, just remember the trick is to not over-burn the butter! If you can find a hard Greek grating cheese, like Mizithra or Kefalotiri, use that instead of the Parmesan.

My husband asks for this! Try adding a bit of minced garlic to the butter, putting a bit of Greek Seasoning in with the mixture, and topping with whatever kind of cheese is on hand before baking. It is the perfect "stand-by" budget-wise main dish. Kudos to Ya-Ya, and thanks for shaking it with us, Nicole!-24 Apr 2005


My family went WILD for this! I am not a very good cook, and the first time I made this, I messed up the recipe a bunch of times and it still tasted DELICIOUS. The second time, I followed the directions perfectly acurately, and it was EVEN BETTER! If you don't taste this dish, there is something wrong with you.-03 Jun 2003

This is fantastic...I have made Sicilian spaghetti and didn't care much for it, so I sort of had that mindset with this recipe, but I changed my tune after one taste...AWESOME! Thanks!-23 Mar 2010
