How to Make Three Cheese Hazelnut Pasta


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta until al dente, according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat, saute shallot for about 2 minutes; set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine cream, wine, chicken stock, shallots and any residual butter. Cook over medium heat until it reduces a bit and begins to thicken, but bear in mind you still are going to be adding the cheeses.
  4. Whisk in the cheeses and heat until they melt and you've got a smooth sauce. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the cheese sauce over the pasta and toss to coat. Fold in half the hazelnuts. Transfer the pasta to a serving platter or bowl and top with the remaining hazelnuts and serve.
