No more thick lumps of cheese in your pasta thanks to these tips

Must Try

Soft and creamy, that’s how a pasta with cheese should taste. A pasta sauce with thick lumps of cheese is not what you want. We give you tips to banish these cheese lumps from your life for good.

This is how you prevent lumps of cheese in your pasta

Have you made such a delicious divine cacio e pepe or carbonara: you will come across many lumps while eating. That doesn’t eat well at all. Pasta with a velvety cheese sauce, that’s what you want. But what are the tips that will ensure that your pastas with cheese never fail?

It doesn’t depend on the cheese you use. Hard cheeses like Parmesan, Grana Padano or Pecorino make your sauce soft and creamy, if you add them to your sauce in the right way. Before tossing cheese into your sauce, ask yourself three things.

1. Is the cheese grated properly?

Make sure to grate a piece of Parmesan cheese very finely. Coarse pieces of cheese tend to melt together, resulting in one or more lumps in your sauce. So always use a fine grater.

2. Is there moisture in the pan?

When you sprinkle grated cheese – no matter how fine – over dry pasta, lumps always form. Warm moist things like pasta water , cream, melted butter or beaten eggs help the cheese melt evenly without lumps.

3. Do you throw all the cheese into the sauce at the same time?

Never do it again! If you add cheese to your sauce or pasta little by little, the cheese will melt evenly and there will be no lumps.
