This is my most requested recipe, by far! Everyone loves this and it's easy to make. Serve with a green salad and garlic bread. I will add pictures next time I make it!
Spaghetti Mizithra with Fresh Basil & Vine Ripened Tomatoes
12 oz. spaghetti
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped garlic (approximate)
1 or 1 1/2 tsp sea salt (depending on your taste)
3 oz chopped fresh basil
2 vine ripened tomatoes, diced and seeds removed
2/3 cup grated mizithra cheese
Put olive oil, garlic, and sea salt in a flat bottom wok (or large, deep skillet). Cook spaghetti noodles until al-dente, strain and set aside. While spaghetti is cooking, chop basil, dice tomatoes, and grate mizithra cheese.
When spaghetti noodles are ready, heat the wok or skillet on medium high with the olive oil, garlic, and sea salt until the olive oil starts to sizzle. Add spaghetti. Stir fry the spaghetti for a few minutes, making sure it has all been thoroughly mixed with olive oil. Add basil and toss. Remove from heat. Serve on a pasta plate. Sprinkle mizithra and top with a small spoonful of diced tomatoes. Serves 3-4.
