How to Match Cheese with Pasta
Cheese seasons pasta, enhances its flavors and adds texture, too. Remember to start with less when first tossing the pasta, as it's easy to add more.
A rich cow's-milk cheese that's naturally suited for dairy-based sauces like alfredo or browned butter, and is a good match for most any pasta dish.
A sheep's- or goat's-milk ricotta that is salted and aged, so it's crumbly and not wet; adds a briny flavor to pasta dishes.
An aged sheep's-milk cheese with a sharp flavor that's best paired with aromatic, olive oil-based sauces.
A mild, fresh cow's- or sheep's-milk cheese used to add creaminess and heft to sauces without heavy cream.
