To prepare two generous portions you need:

  • 1 cup penne or nearly 250 g (uncooked)
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 75g gruyere, shredded or small cubes
  • 75g emmental, shredded or small cubes
  • 75g cheddar, shredded or small cubes
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • pinch of powdered garlic
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • handful shredded mozzarella

Cook the pasta as per the pack instructions and set aside

Heat the wine (2-3 minutes), when the first bubble starts to show add the cheeses little by little with the cornstarch. When all melted and well incorporated (5-7 minutes) add the pinch of garlic and cream. Cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Mix the sauce with the penne and pour in a baking dish. Cover with a layer of mozzarella and bake in the oven (200°C) until the surface is golden, about 5-8 minutes.

Very easy and ready in less than 30 minutes! The ultimate satisfying food; it’s thick, creamy and rich in flavors. More than that, it is boozy too 🙂

If you want to make a bigger portion just double the ingredients and enjoy it with friends or the next day leftovers.
