I love cheese! If you adore cheese as much as I do, I’m sure you’d like this easy cheddar pasta dish which is quick to make and just tastes so wonderfully rich and cheesy. I was just being greedy because 250g of grated cheddar is really A LOT for a 2 persons’ serving but I chose to dump all into the pot to make it really saucy. You’d need extra bread to clean up those gooey lovely cheese sauce on your plate!
Cheesy Ham, Leek & Mushroom Spaghetti Recipe
Ingredients (serves 2)
250g spaghetti, cooked till al dente
100g ham, cut into small pieces
3 stalks leeks, sliced
200g button mushrooms, sliced
250g grated cheddar cheese
200ml fresh milk
salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
1. Heat a little oil in pan and stir-fry the leeks and mushrooms till tender.
2. Add ham and fresh milk and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat.
3. Add cheese and stir till it has all melted. Toss in the spaghetti and season with a little salt and pepper.
How easy can this be? Anything goes with cheese, really. I cooked the same for lunch the next day using penne, chicken, leeks and onions and it turned out great too.
Two cheesy meals in a row, I could properly collapse from a heart attack, lol. So make this a once in a while indulgence for the sake of health! Whatever you like that goes well with cheese, just experiment with your favourite ingredients to create different variations. Bon appetit!
