I love cheese! I can’t help it and I know it’s not healthy, I know it’s fattening, but for me it was so much easier to give up meat rather than give up cheese. Even though I love it, I rarely eat it, but when I do…OH MY! I eat the most delicious cheese recipes ever! [later edit - I'm vegan now..hehe :D]

This is the basic quattro formaggi penne recipe and it’s ready super fast! I tried to make it a little bit healthier by substituting milk with water and not using any butter. If you want to impress someone, this is the recipe you want to make!

Ador branzeturile…nu ma pot abtine! Stiu ca nu sunt prea sanatoase, stiu si ca ingrasa, insa pentru mine a fost mult mai usor sa renunt la carne decat la branza. Chiar daca imi place asa de mult, sa stiti ca o mse ananc destul de rar, dar atunci cand se intampla…vai…mananc unele dintre cele mai gustoase retete cu branza EVER!
