      I made this for dinner tonight since my boyfriend and I were craving Spaghetti Factory's version. It was really good! The only thing I altered was the cheese; I used all mizithra. We halved the recipe but ended up with a lot of cheese left over, so I'll probably only do 1/4 of the cheese next time.

      I met this dish in Newport Beach at "The Spag" (that's what the locals called the Spaghetti Factory). I fell in love with it then and still love it today. I have made this recipe for years, tweaking it, here and there, but this seems to be the easiest to do. I used Mizithra cheese instead of the Romano. When grated together with the Kasseri, it's excellent! I will note that the butter really needs to get to a bubbling brown point (but not burnt) in order to marry all the flavours together. Other than that, its easy and a great dish to serve up on its own, or on the side of Italian Sausage, beef, or lamb. Introduce or try this out with your kids instead of Mac and Cheese out of a box. My son loved it. Thanks for this recipe.
