«Pasta ai 3 formaggi», one more Italian classic which pleases the eye with its striking green and white colours, as well as the palate. The green colour of the pasta is obtained by adding spinach in the pasta dough.

Ingredients

150 g green fettuccine (fresh)
1/4 cup ricotta cheese, light 50 g
30 g Gorgonzola cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 14 g
4 tsp cream 15% 20 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Cook the fresh pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, exactly as you would do for dried pasta. The cooking time is written on the package: the pasta is ready when just tender but still firm to the bite (al dente).
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pasta bowl, combine the 3 cheeses: ricotta, gorgonzola, and grated parmesan. Warm them up in a microwave oven then add the cream.
  3. Pour the drained pasta into the bowl, mix well and adjust the seasoning. Serve in the warmed dishes.
