It's hard to really enjoy pasta without cheese! Think lasagne, cheesy pasta bakes, macaroni cheese - then browse through loads of cheesy pasta recipes to find the one you want to try tonight.
Our favourite - and simplest - fresh sauce for pasta. They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and we came up with this scrumptious recipe 'specially for tomato season, after we discovered that planting all your tomatoes at the same time results in an awful lot of fresh tomatoes at once! This is a quick and easy way to use up a few, and it keeps brilliantly. Everyone we know is still going to get tomato chutney for Christmas this year, though. . .
Total comfort food! And great as a side dish to chicken or pork. For the cheese, you can use grated Parmesan or other mature hard cheese, or even a cream cheese.
A fresh pasta salad incorporating loads of spinach, feta and and black olives.
Delicious and creamy, this dish is prepared with fresh and simple ingredients.
This recipe uses less milk and no thickener whatsoever! Very cheesy, too! You can either serve it from the pot, or top with buttered breadcrumbs and put in a 180 / Gas 4 oven to brown for half an hour, but we like ours fine without.
This quick main dish can be served hot or cool. The pasta is topped with feta cheese, which has a fresh, salty flavour that goes well with pancetta, the Italian bacon, chickpeas and tomato in the sauce. For best results, use a tubular or thick pasta shape that will complement the chunky sauce.
Homemade pasta is filled with a mixture of mushrooms, spinach, cream cheese, Parmesan and mozzarella, then served with a chive butter sauce. It's the perfect Italian starter or main course.
A hearty pasta bake of macaroni, beef mince, chopped tomatoes and tomato juice, grated Cheddar cheese and onions (if you like). Fun to make and enjoy with the kids at half term!
This quick supper dish with a creamy sauce is so delicious that everyone will be surprised to learn that the sauce is made from only one ingredient. Colour and texture are provided by broccoli and cauliflower. Offer bread to complement the vegetables and a simple tomato salad to contrast with the creamy sauce.
I like to treat myself and friends to this fabulously delicious pasta dish. Caramelised onions, balsamic vinegar and Gorgonzola cheese, tossed with spaghetti.
