About this recipe: 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.


Serves: 4 

  • 450g spaghetti
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 140g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
