Four Cheese Spaghetti — Damn Delicious

Без кейворда

Four Cheese Spaghetti

AMAZINGLY creamy and so velvety with literally 4 different types of cheeses here! It’s quick/easy and perfect for company too!

Let me just start by saying this.

We are not counting calories when we make this dish. We just can’t.

The only task involved here is to add in your butter, the four cheeses, and plenty of garlic.

So no. Calories DO NOT count here.

I mean, you can always throw in some kale or spinach but……

Let’s just enjoy this while it lasts.

Because summer is slowly coming to an end and sweater season is right around the corner.

AMAZINGLY creamy and so velvety with literally 4 different types of cheeses here! It’s quick/easy and perfect for company too!


  • 8 ounces spaghetti
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, or more, as needed
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Will serve this with stuffed chicken breasts and green beans. And then wait for the applause. Everyone deserves a “let’s go for it” meal now and then, right?

We love making quick one pot spaghetti like this especially on those busy weeknights.
Gotta try this next time 🙂
Thanks Chungah!

Tired of writing down recipes – HAVE to buy your cookbook!

I’m an 82 year newbie & My dog “ASHLEY” & I love to eat. Your recipes are wonderful & a work of art also …Thank you

I agree with Robert!

Pasta and cheese……I see no downside here

I would add also some bacon to this dish…
It looks great…

Hi! I made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious. I will definitely repeat it. On the second serving we added some Frank’s Hot Sauce on top. Actually, I opened the bottle wrong and poured about 2 tsp. of the hot sauce on one serving of pasta. It was hot, but ohhhhh soooooo gooooood! So next time I make this dish, I’m going to add the Frank’s Hot Sauce to the actual recipe. If you like some heat, it is a-maz-ing!

P.S. I just finished reading your cookbook and I can’t wait to start cooking from it! You did an excellent job, it is the perfect cookbook for anyone trying to get dinner on the table in a short amount of time. Plus all of your recipes always taste so good! Thanks for putting it together!

The addition of hot sauce sounds AH-MAZING! I will definitely have to try that for next time.

This dish turned out heavy and quite sticky no matter how much I tried to thin it. I used fine imported cheeses and followed the directions exactly. As an after thought I think that there is too much thickener in the form of flour. I understand that you are trying to make a standard white sauce with cheese, but a thinner starter might be better then trying to thin it later. The spaghetti just coagulated into sticky clumps. Perhaps this would be better with a different shape of pasta like penne or some other tubular pasta.

Made this last night for dinner and it was friggin awesome.

Sorry you won’t print a friendly critical review. Won’t try again and did not mean any disrespect, but this recipe did not work for me.

Patricia, comments take 24-48 hours to be moderated. All reviews are published, critical or not. Please see below for my response:

I’m sorry that this recipe did not turn out the way you had imagined. I only post recipes that have been successfully tested in my own kitchen, and as you can see from the comments here, many of these readers have had great outcomes in the final dish as well. However, I understand that we all have different taste preferences, and I really appreciate your honest feedback.

Please note that as directed in the recipe, additional milk can be added as needed until the desired consistency is reached. Also, the sauce will become thicker as it sits out. It is best to serve immediately.

Made this last night for dinner and it was yummy awesome.

This looks delicious and I think the hubs would love it. Can’t go wrong with cheese and more cheese. Can’t wait to try it!

I normally don’t comment, although I should because I’ve tried lots of Chungah’s recipes and they’ve all turned out amazing. TO THOSE COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW “AWFUL” THIS IS–keep in mind that a bad dish does NOT mean a recipe is bad, the other part involves the cook and techniques used, timing, etc. Cooking is a form of art, seriously. Lots of people have had success with this recipe, and all of her other ones as well. If it does not turn out right, I strongly suggest you take a look at what you did in the kitchen before you start pointing fingers. The other part is also your ingredients. The better they are, the better tasting your dish will be. I made this exactly as written, and it turned out wonderful. You are doing a phenomenal job, Chungah. Many of your recipes are in my lunch and dinner rotations and I look forward to all of your future recipes to try them!

This looks incredibly delicious!. Love the flavors in these! My boys would devour them quickly.

It is looking so delicious, I am gonna definately give it a try… Cheese Lovers attack on this recipe

This is the second time I’ve made this and I love it sooo much. I added rosemary and red pepper in with the spices this time and it turned out super tasty. This is one of those recipes that I will keep and make for the rest of my life. Thank you!

I made this just now and it was amazing! I also messed up pretty bad and it still came out incredibly delicious! LOL I was proudly whisking the milk and cream like a champ and was about to add the pasta when I saw my flour just sitting there, waiting to be added. I can’t wait to make this again!

I just finished reading your cookbook and I can’t wait to start cooking from it! You did an excellent job, it is the perfect cookbook for anyone trying to get dinner on the table in a short amount of time.

These are insane! Love these, and need to make them soon.

My entire family loves this dish. Have made it many many times. I add rotisserie chicken.

4 servings? Hahaha
