Ingredients

150 g green fettuccine (fresh)    
1/4 cup ricotta cheese, light   50 g
30 g Gorgonzola cheese, or Cambozola    
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated   14 g
4 tsp cream 15%   20 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

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.
