GREEK SPAGHETTI. These two words are enough to send my heart (and appetite) aflutter, and have been ever since I was young. Growing up, my mom would make whatever I wanted on my birthday, and more often than not this was my request. It’s the first thing I ever cooked for Zach and now we’re married. (Coincidence? I think not.) I’ve been saving this recipe for a long time, waiting to post on my blog for the right moment. Greek Spaghetti is the ultimate comfort food for me- and given the fact that I am 8 months pregnant and in need of some edible comfort, now seems as good a time as any to share my favorite family recipe with you!
Just because this recipe is called “Greek Spaghetti” doesn’t mean it has your most familiar “Greek” ingredients- olives, feta, etc. It’s Greek in an entirely different way. This recipe is packed with ground beef spiced with cinnamon and drizzled with (lots of) rich browned butter, and sprinkled with Romano cheese. It’s rich, earthy, and decadent. And amazing and wonderful and represents everything that is good in the world. It truly is the food of the gods….
