Quattro Formaggi penne pasta recipe, with a low fat, healthier version. If you want to impress this is the recipe you want to make! 

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!
