Quattro Formaggi Pasta

These Quattro Formaggi pasta recipe was inspired by the traditional Italian recipe but turned into 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 that healthy, I know it’s fattening, but for me, it was so much easier to give up meat rather than cheese. Even though I love it, I rarely eat it, but when I do…OH MY! I eat the most delicious cheese recipes ever!

This Quattro Formaggi pasta recipe is 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!
