Inventive ways of using our blue cheeses

Crozier Blue Cacio E Pepe

Preparation time: 25 mins | Cooking time: 15 mins | Serves: 2

Use fresh pasta as it releases more starch, and hence makes a better sauce consistency.

Recommend pasta: La Rosa Pasta

 

  • 350ml Water
  • 750g Fresh Pasta
  • 50ml Cream
  • 45g Crozier Blue Cheese
  • Some extra Crozier Blue cheese for serving
  • Pinch Sea salt
  • 3 pinches ground black pepper
  • A pinch of finely sliced fresh parsley
  1. Heat up the water with 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan, and add the fresh pasta and the black pepper, stir it around and let it simmer without a lid.
  2. Meanwhile bring the cream to the boil in another saucepan. Add in the Crozier Blue cheese, letting it melt and form the blue cheese sauce. Remember to keep some cheese for the serving later.
  3. After 10 minutes of the pasta simmering, most of the liquid should be absorbed by the pasta and the pasta will be softer and al dente. At this point pour the blue cheese sauce into the pan and stir around. Let it all reduce for another couple of minutes, stirring well.
  4. Serve immediately, crumbling some chunks of Crozier Blue cheese on top and garnishing with some fresh parsely.
