    Three cheeses, spaghetti and little else combine to make a speedy and flavourful meal. If you can't find provolone, use another semi-soft cheese, such as Gruyere, Edam or Emmental.

    I can't believe that this dish is rated so high!! I followed the instructions exactly as laid out in the recipe and it tasted awful!! We used top quality cheese, but the dish turned out very greasy and oily and had zero flavour. So be forewarned that if you buy good cheese, you're looking at about $10 and it's just no good.  -  26 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    It was our first Dinner Party in our new house, and my SO's 30th birthday. A doubly special event. I was struggling with a Vegetarian guest, and another guess that would not eat a vegetable if his life depended on it (he is a meat-and-potatoes-hold-the-potatoes kind of guy). I thought this dish would be safest, pasta and cheese. Who doesn't like pasta and cheese? It turned out awesome! I added some mizithra to the mix, which is just what it needed. Also, not sure if it is clear in the instructions, but it is even better if you brown the butter (and use BUTTER, not that margarine stuff)  -  01 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Growing up, my grandfather always let me eat my spaghetti with just butter. This is a grown up version of that. I think that roasted garlic would definately give it a richer flavor but for me, it was great the way it is written. You could spruce it up with some sauteed spinach-saute it with the roasted garlic maybe. Anyway, this recipe is simple, and with good basic ingredients very good.  -  10 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
