Cheese pasta recipe with mustard


Italians are so lucky! They invited pasta, pizza and shared it with the World!
I can’t imagine my life without knowing pasta and cheese. Definitely, I am a bigger fan of pasta than pizza. Probably because I was overeating pizza during my first jobs experiences in Pizzerias, I can skip pizza.  But what I can’t skip is pasta. I love baked pasta, lasagna, pasta bolognese, carbonara or 

I can’t take you to Italy, but what I can do is show you one cheesy pasta recipe. It’s easy, quick, super tasty, and as a bonus, it’s healthier.

Can be cheese pasta healthier?

There is always the question “Is pasta healthy“? My answer i “Yes”! It can be healthy and good for your body. I believe that food can be tasty and healthier, even fast food. Yes, you can read it right! If you choose the right products, recipes and you set a healthy mindset, you can enjoy every dish and knowing that it’s good for you. Try to buy quality, organic products and keep portions smaller and you can still enjoy every meal. Also, you can find an unbelievable amount of healthy fast food recipes online. 


Vegan option

I made sauce that contains dairy but for the Vegan diet switch all cheese, milk for non-dairy options. The measure will be the same and probably taste better.

I like pasta not only because of the taste, but it’s just super easy to make it! Let’s be honest, but we all are lazy sometimes, and even if we enjoy cooking, we need something pretty quick and easy, and pasta is the right choice. You can find so many amazing recipes that are easy and still tasty.
