When you want to cheese-up pasta, what do you reach for? We’re guessing its probably grated Parmesan or fresh mozzarella—both classic choices that we can’t argue with. But might we suggest trying something different the next time you boil up a pot? Here, five other cheeses to consider tossing with pasta.
When it’s mixed with warm pasta and some reserved pasta cooking water, fresh goat cheese becomes a light, tangy and luxurious sauce. Try it in this recipe for spaghetti with spinach and tomatoes.
Gooey, rich Brie is amazing in a silky pasta like this fettuccine with escarole.
Not for the faint of nose, pungent, melty Taleggio is particularly great in a baked pasta like this recipe for baked shells with cauliflower.
Finish pastas with shredded provolone for a salty, creamy effect like Marc Vetri does in this great orecchiette dish.
Try pairing strong, salty-tangy Gorgonzola with other strong flavors. This penne recipe with brussels sprouts fits the bill.
