A very rich, creamy, and zesty cheese and pasta recipe. Not for the dieters out there! The salad dressing adds a very nice creaminess and a little 'bite'!

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, and cook the rigatoni pasta 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente. Drain, and return pasta to the pot.

  • In the pot with the pasta, mix the butter, garlic, Cheddar cheese, Gouda cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Cook and stir over low heat. Be careful not to have too much heat, as the cheese will get stringy. Gradually mix in the blue cheese dressing and milk. Continue to cook and stir until the pasta is well coated. Season with paprika, salt, and pepper.

Yummm! Easy one pot pasta dish. We like a lot of sauce so rather than messing with the amount of cheese for the first time making the recipe I simply skimped a bit on the amount of pasta (probably 12 oz). It was perfect. After the cheese melted and was evenly distributed I had my doubts about what would happen when I added the very liquid blue-cheese dressing & milk but I added it gradually as instructed and it coated the pasta and made a very nice creamy sauce. Rigatoni is the perfect pasta shape for this dish. Read More

This was great I only did one thing different. I added 1/2 bottle of red wine into the cook made the time go faster while this delicious dish was being prepared. Wonderful thanks for sharing. Read More

This was super yummy with some tweaks. Used Jalapeno Gouda and parm (no cheddar or blue cheese). Mixed a little milk in the pasta when melting the cheese. Used heavy cream and 3 egg yolks (a little more like a carbonara). Also sauted an onion and garlic and added that later. I had some left over ham so I threw that in with some canned peas. Hubby raved about it and I thought that it was pretty good too! Only 4 stars because I didn't "really" use this recipe but what I created from it was awesome! Thanks! Read More

This was really good but the cheese didn't melt very well. Next time I think I'll try parsley instead of paprika for better color. Read More
