Creamy Three-Cheese Spaghetti

This Creamy Three-Cheese Spaghetti is my take on the Italian classic “Cacio e Pepe” which is a very simple pasta dish which is made using only black pepper, cheese and pasta. I take the recipe a bit further by including heavy cream and some garlic, but this is still a very simple pasta recipe. I occasionally add extra ingredients like strips of smoked salmon or crispy fried bacon, but to be honest, it tastes great just as it is.

While some spaghetti is cooking, I prepare the sauce by frying some garlic and adding cream and broth. Then I add the cooked pasta, cheese and season well. To serve, I place the pasta in bowls and sprinkle with chives.

To make my Creamy Three-Cheese Spaghetti, you will need the following ingredients:
