Pasta With Aged Mizithra Cheese (Macaronia Me Mizithra)

June 6, 2014 by: Zoe Vlachos Recipes

This is probably one of the most loved, simple and quick Greek dishes!  It is often served as a side to grilled meat, fish, Greek village salad and is also eaten on its own. Mizithra cheese is made from the whey in whole goats milk. It can be found in a fresh, soft and slightly sweet version (similar to Ricotta cheese), which is used in desserts.   It can also be found in an aged, hard and salty version ideal for grating onto pasta. For this dish a strict recipe does not need to be followed to end up with wonderful results.  Simply boil  pasta of choice until el dente. Coat pasta with olive oil or melted butter and generously sprinkle with Mizithra! Enjoy!
