Pasta With Asiago Cheese Sauce

Having ham for dinner last night, I thought this dish would be a nice compliment to old Porky and a great way to use some of our Asiago cheese  we received from Italy! With a few changes to a pasta recipe I found in a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, I have to admit it came out pretty awesome. Oh yea… One thing to add, while grating the aged Asiago Cheese…It kinda got away from me…As you can see! Of course< Kenny had to be the man and take over the grating. Macho dude he is!  ;-)

Cheese every where!! Oh my!

Cheese every where!! Oh my!

Kenny really loved the pasta and it went so well with the fresh green beans I had picked up at the flea market this week. We had a little cheese on everything (literately) including our crescent rolls! Although I could not finish off my whole plate (you know, eyes bigger than your stomach thing), husband had no problem helping me. I am really looking forward to using all of this wonderful tasting cheese in more delicious recipes in the near future.

The chilled Sangria went perfect with this meal.

Pasta With Asiago Cheese Sauce
  • 4 oz thin spaghetti
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature, divided
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • 4 oz cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp parsley flakes
  • 1-1/2 teas oregano flakes
  • ½ teas basil flakes
  • ⅓ cup boiling water
  • ½ cup Asiago cheese
  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter to the hot pasta along with desired amount of garlic; keep warm.
  3. Blend together the cream cheese and remaining butter along with the parsley, oregano and basil; stir in the boiling water and mix well.
  4. Add the Asiago cheese to the cream cheese mixture and toss with the buttered noodles.


Like I said, I also had green beans and we sprinkled them with some extra grated real Asiago Cheese and before I rolled up my crescent rolls, they too got a little cheese with a little dash of garlic…… Hope you enjoy and have a nice weekend!

Pizza Style Popcorn

This is sort of an updated version of Pizza Flavored Popcorn that I posted back in October of 2012 when it was National Popcorn Poppin’ Month. Today is National Popcorn Day and as pizza and popcorn are two of our other favorite food groups, I thought this one would be outstanding for Super Bowl or even just the play-off games. I took a bunch of recipes I have found over the years and kind of put them all together to come up with this concoction that I really think the men will love along with everyone else!

Pizza and Popcorn, it doesn't get any better than this!
