Capellini with Browned Butter Sauce Recipe
1 stick of butter 4 oz
1 cup of pancetta diced into small pieces
3 whole garlic cloves finely diced
3/4 cup Myzithra cheese

Melt the butter on low heat until it is melted, stirring occasionally. Stir until it changes color to golden brown. Skim the foam.
Cook the capellini or angel hair pasta using the instructions from the package.
Preheat a bottom thick pan and saute your pancetta until golden brown and remove them from the pan. Drain half the rendered fat and saute the mushrooms for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue sauteing for another min.
Add the cooked pasta, pancetta and ⅔ of the myzithra cheese to the saute pan and stir.
Garnish with myzithra cheese and italian parsley, then serve
