Fettuccine quattro formaggi

Italian is one of my favorite cuisines: it’s simple, natural and super tasty. And I can eat pizza and pasta almost everyday…too bad my hips disagree with the idea. However, I still like to indulge in different Italian recipes to saturate my love for Italian food. This not that special but all mine recipe has become hit not only with me but with my friends. If you decide to try it I hope you like it.

I had fettuccine but you can use whatever pasta you like. I filled a large pot with water and added some salt. When the water started boiling, I added the pasta and turned the heat down. In about 15 min the fettuccine were ready, so I put them in a strainer, ran some cold water, drained them and returned them in the pot. I always add some butter that gives the pasta extra flavor.

While the pasta was cooking, I heated up some olive oil in a large skillet, cut the onion and garlic and put them in the skillet. When they were braised, I added the tomatoes, some salt and pepper and started to stir. When the sauce started to boil, I added the different types of cheese and continued to stir. I used some cheese that I bought in Amsterdam but I think any type of cheese will work. At the end I added some basil and oregano, so their scent and flavour would be fresh. I used basil leaves for decoration and that’s all.
