If you like the famous Spaghetti with Mizithra Cheese and Browned Butter at The Old Spaghetti Factory, this version with spaghetti squash is low-carb and gluten-free!
If you're living in the U.S. and you're familiar with Mizithra Cheese, there's a good chance you learned about it at The Old Spaghetti Factory, where Spaghetti with Mizithra Cheese and Browned Butter has been the most popular dish since 1969. I've been a long-time fan of this famous dish, but for quite a few years now it's been a rare treat for me, even after The Old Spaghetti Factory started offering whole wheat spaghetti.
But recently my sister Janet visited Utah and when she had dinner with friends at The Old Spaghetti Factory she brought me home a tub of their famous Mizithra Cheese. I decided to try to create a recipe using it that was a bit more diet-friendly so Jake and I first tried using Mizithra and browned butter on zucchini noodles, an experiment that was most definitely not a keeper. So I thought about it some more and had the idea of using Mizithra and browned butter on spaghetti squash.
Oh my happy tastebuds! This Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Mizithra Cheese and Browned Butter was amazing. Everything about this combination worked perfectly, and when we tested the recipe Jake and I had to use ultimate self control not to eat it all at once! Of course this recipe has Mizithra cheese and browned butter, so it's probably still somewhat of a diet splurge for most people. But this low-carb and gluten-free version of The Old Spaghetti Factory's Spaghetti with Mizithra and Browned Butter is certainly a treat you can enjoy a little more often.
