Cheesy Spaghetti Extraordinaire


Look! I mean, Look at this photo. Can you tell that the pasta is drenched in this cheesy, juicy sauce? Well... I can! And I can also assure you it tasted even more fantastic than it looks. My wonderful mother made this yesterday since I was more than preoccupied with my paper for school and she didn't want poor, poor girl to starve herself to the point she will just jump out of the window. Like that would happen. :D
But who knows what intense work and hunger will do to someone. 
Oh ya, like making me procrastinate once again. Oh well, you're welcome :) Because now you will have a recipe that you will want to cherish or even hide or keep it a secret because once others try this dish, they won't leave you alone until you give them the recipe. It's this good. Believe me. I mean, it's not even my recipe and I'm singing praises for it. 


Cheesy Spaghetti
makes for 4 people

200 ml (0.8 cup) cream - we used non-dairy
1 cup of the pasta water
200 grams (about 2 cups) grated gouda cheese - or the type you have at home
1/2 cup parmesan
2 cloves garlic - minced
salt
pepper
300 grams spaghetti (that's about 2/3 of the package)

Bring a big bowl of water to a boil. Add your pasta and 3 teaspoons of salt to it. Cook till al dente, about 8 minutes. Reserve some of the water for the sauce.

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a bigger saucepan or wok. Add the minced garlic and cook for a few minutes. Pour the cream on top and let it simmer. Add 1 cup of pasta water and keep cooking. Mix in the cheeses and cook until you get a very creamy dense sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Stir the pasta in the sauce and serve immediately. Enjoy! :)

  5. We love spaghetti at our house, or almost any pasta for that matter! My two year old even asks for it regularly and calls it “skebbie”, so it’s something I make quite a bit!

    This slow cooker cheesy spaghetti is one of our favorites and contains, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and cheddar cheese for extra cheesy goodness!

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB.
