A post in a different tone: A recipe!

Here's a totally awesome cheesy white pasta sauce. It's not creamy, so it's not heavy. Best served with veal tortellini.

Serves 2. 10 mins approx.


  • Butter, 35g
  • Milk, 1-2 cups
  • Mozzarella cheese, 1 handful
  • Tasty cheese, 3 handfuls
  • Cornflour, 2 tsp
  • Sweet white wine, 1 cup (e.g. Semillon sauvignon blanc)
  • Bacon, 2 rashers
  • Fresh parsley, 2 tbsp
  • Freshly ground black pepper - to taste
  • Pickled JalapeƱos - to taste (optional)


  • Melt half the butter in the pot. Fry bacon moderately.
  • Throw in rest of butter and half the milk
  • Add cheese
  • Stir until cheese melts
  • Dissolve cornflour in the wine. Add to pot.
  • Raise heat until bubbling
  • Add rest of ingredients.
