Creamy stilton pasta

This is probably my all time favourite recipe that I have come up with and I have spoken about it many times it makes me think that I have blogged it before so I apologise in advance if I have because I can't seem to find it. just a shame I can't eat blue cheese at the moment but guess this could work with a strong crumbly cheese like a Lancashire cheese.

 Healthy Extra of stiliton cheese, I use a garlic and mushroom white stilton that I get from a local market
Vegatables of your choice I used peppers, onions and mushrooms.

1. Crumble the stilton in the quark overnight so that the quark can absorb all the flavour.
2. Cook the pasta
3. Fry up vegetables and herbs
4. Drain pasta and combine all the ingredients



  1. Again sounds good. I don't know if I can get "quark" cheese here but I can look. For that matter, I don't know about stilton (never heard of it). Ah well.

    1. Stilton is a strong and smelly blue cheese so a little gives a lot of flavour. I can't really eat it on it's own but is much better than other cheeses for flavouring quark.

  2. If you could give even approximate identities and amounts of the herbs and other ingredients then I'd seriously consider trying this one. I'd have to search to find the cheeses but it might be fun to try.

    1. I usually use 28g of Stilton cheese, I read that Stilton can only be made in three counties in England so might be difficult to get over there and if you can might be really expensive but just look for a smelly strong blue cheese. I used about 125g quark. I use a lot of pasta as it's something I don't need to weigh on the plan I follow, but packets usually say 100g pasta per person.

      Herbs use 1 clove of garlic, teaspoon of chives and a couple of twists of cracked black pepper. I also sometimes put some chilli in for a bit of a kick, but I know you would probably laugh at the tiny amount I use!

      I use mainly frozen veg so a handful on diced onions, handfuls of mixed peppers and around 6 sliced mushrooms.

  3. OK thanks. I'm going to refer back to this later and see if I can find those cheeses. We have some international grocers here and it would be fun to try to find these things. My wife loves cheese but not sure if she likes the blue cheeses or not. I'll let you know if I get to this!
