Cheesy Pasta With a Twist

Since Daddy Hazelden has started working in London, myself, the kids and Nannie have been having Wednesday dinner. This may not seem like anything too special but if you knew what a fussy eater Daddy Hazelden can be, I think you would be as excited as us to eat something that we wouldn't normally cook.

Each week someone gets to choose what we have for dinner and we cook it fresh. This week Elise chose cheesy pasta, this is a treat because Daddy doesn't like cheese at all so this wouldn't normally be on the menu.


* Tub of single cream
* Ricotta cheese
* Ball of mozarella cheese
* Grated cheedar cheese (up to you how much, depending how strong you like it)
* Fresh pasta of choice
* Turkey Rashers
* Sweetcorn


* Put all the cheeses and the cream into a microwavable bowl and microwave on hight a minute at a time until all the ingredients have melted together. If you want a thinner sauce then add a little milk to it.

* Cook the pasta as per the instructions on the packet

* Whilst the pasta is cooking, grill the turkey rashers and then cut them into smaller pieces and cook the sweetcorn

* Mix the pasta, turkey rashers, sweetcorn and cheese sauce in a bowl and serve.

A quick and easy dinner that serves plenty. I even had sauce left over to make another dinner for myself.

What do you like to have with pasta??

  1. Sounds like my kind of dinner! Cheesy pasta is a firm favourite in our house :)

  2. My boys are pasta lovers too. I do a white sauce and throw in some fried garlic, courgette and mushrooms, or a cheese one very similar to yours, or passata with chunks of sausage. We all love pesto with crispy bacon bits too. x
