Pasta ai Quattro Formaggi

Easy. Delicious. Pasta perfection. Did I mention EASY? If you can grate cheese and boil water you are golden.

I don’t know about you, but I always have random cheese hanging out in my fridge. I love cheese. So coming up with four cheeses for this was a snap. You can use whatever cheese you want. I usually try to use a few hard cheeses and maybe something soft like a feta, my usual is romano, parmesan, asiago and/or gouda sometimes a sharp cheddar or if I only have 3 cheeses that sound good I’ll use double the amount of one, it’s just a nice flexible dish.

Plus it only uses one big pot to make it! Wahoo! Easy dish night :) Everyone loves an easy dish night – especially my kids now that they are in charge of doing the dinner dishes.

Recipe By:
Recipe type: Main, Pasta
Serves: 6-8
  • 1lb pasta (the recipe called for angel hair, but I had only one kind of pasta in the cupboard and it was not angel hair which would have been good but Jeremiah also hates angel hair so I never buy it so that's why it wasn't in the cupboard.)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 whole garlic clove
  • ½ cup each of 4 different cheeses (romano, parmesan, asiago and gouda are good ones)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, soft
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • minced fresh parsley
Preparation Instructions
  1. Cook the noodles according to package directions, do not over cook them though, you want them al dente.
  2. Drain the pasta (reserving some of the water) and put back in the pot.
  3. Pour the cream in over the pasta.
  4. Add the butter and all the cheeses, salt and pepper. Stir it around to melt the cheese and combine everything.
  5. If it seems a little thick, add some pasta water.
  6. Then get out a large serving bowl and take the garlic clove and cut it in half. Then rub the garlic all over the inside of the serving bowl, I also did all the bowls we were eating out of cause we like garlic a lot. Then I minced up the garlic and tossed it in, but you can skip that if you want to. Like I said, we like garlic a lot.
  7. Then put the pasta in the serving bowl and sprinkle some minced parsley over the top to make it look pretty.
