This recipe is perfect for a dinner party! A couple of months ago, I saw a video on Facebook of an eatery in Italy serving pasta tableside out of a cheese wheel. I have been obsessed with making this ever since. The how-to video & full recipe is below. Enjoy!
PASTA in a CHEESE WHEEL Recipe
-8.8-ounce Fettuccine Pasta (Note: Or your favorite style pasta.)
-1 tbs Garlic Cloves (chopped)
-2 cups of Heavy Cream
-¼ teaspoon Sea Salt
-¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
-3/4 cup of White Wine
-1 1/2 cup freshly grated Pecorino or Parmesan Cheese
-1/3 cup fresh Italian Parsley (chopped, extra for garnish)
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-1 Small Onion (chopped)
-About 4.5 lb Pecorino Ginepro or Parmesan Cheese Wheel
*Chisel the middle of the cheese wheel with a pairing knife. Place extra cheese on the side and save.
*Boil pasta for 6 to 7 minutes in a large pan. Drain well and set aside in a nonstick large pan and drizzle a little olive oil & mix so the pasta will not stick.
*In a medium saucepan over medium heat, drizzle olive oil and sauté garlic & onions. Add white wine and cook down. Add heavy cream & cook until the sauce thickens. Add grated cheese and whisk together. Add salt & pepper and add parsley. Add in pasta and toss all together.
*Torch the middle of the cheese wheel, chisel off some more cheese and leave chiseled cheese in the cheese wheel.
Place some pasta in cheese wheel bowl and toss around. Garnish with freshly grated cheese & Parsley. Serve & enjoy!
