Step 1: Hunt and Gather
Stove top (or equivalent)
Two pots (one large one small)
Colander (careful don't strain yourself)
Pasta (about four servings give or take)
Butter (salted or non) 1/4 cup +/- (no substitutes)
Myzithra Cheese 1/8 to 1/4 cup (a hard salty cheese that is not quite like any other)
- this cheese keeps really well so go ahead and buy some next time you're out shopping.
