Recipe type: Pasta
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 6-8 oz. of pasta of choice
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 oz. cream cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded "creamy melt" mozzarella
  • 1 oz. Brie
  • 1 oz. smoked Gouda
  • 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • ½-1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Semi-dried parsley, to garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook pasta, according to package directions, until al dente. Once cooked, drain past in a colander and return pot to the stove.
  2. Over medium heat, melt butter. Add in the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Stir in room-temperature cream cheese in small pieces so it melts easier. Slowly add in the mozzarella after the cream cheese has fully melted. Next, stir in the Brie in small pieces and combine completely before adding in the smoked Gouda in the same way. Once these four cheese are well combined, add in 2 tablespoons of Parmesan. If the sauce is too thick, gradually add more heavy cream. If the sauce is too runny, add in more Parmesan. Add ½ to 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, depending on personal preference. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add pasta to the sauce, coating it thoroughly. Add the pasta to two plates and garnish with semi-dried parsley and pepper.
