Noodles with herbal soft-cheese-sauce

Today I would like to share a quick-fix recipe with you because at times it just has to go quick and you don’t have much time on your hands.

This recipe I created just a few days before our summer holiday, using the last few ingredients I could find in the house.
So I found:
  • Noodles (always have them in house)
  • A little bit of Oil (Sunflower, Olive oil... what u would usually use)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 Pack soft cheese

  • a bit of Milk
  • a bunch parsley (or frozen / harvested from your summer garden)
  • a little bit of tomato puree
  • grated cheese (whatever you like and have in you fridge: it can be everything from Emmental, Gouda to Parmesan)
While cooking noodles in boiling water, I am preparing the sauce.

PS: there is no need to boil the noodles in salted water. First of all noodles usually already contain salt and secondly: we all consume way to much salt anyways and I don’t even want to go there explaining what that does to our health.

If you spice up your sauce with herbs you don’t need much salt – no one will taste the difference as a whole lot of different tastebuds are getting tickled :)

For the sauce just add a teaspoon of oil into a pot and heat it up. Add the finely chopped or crushed garlic and the tomato puree.

Then add the soft cheese. Regarding the amount of the soft cheese or the noodles please consider the amount of people cooking. I am usually cooking for 2,5 people = 2 adults and our little man. So if you cook for more, you can use the full pack of soft cheese which is approximately 250g.

In order to get the sauce nice and creamy add a bit of milk. Don’t add too much or the sauce will be too runny, however if you add less it might be a bit thick. Add bit by bit until you get the consistency to your liking.

Then add the parsley and simmer for a little bit so the flavours can unfold.

Garnish the noodles on the plate with the sauce and add the grated cheese on top ... tastes yummy and is also ideal for little Toddlers who just learn how to eat themselves.

Guten Appetit
