Fun Recipe Ideas using The Laughing Cow Cheeses

[Main] Cheesy Penne with Salmon and Broccoli
Dairy products such as cheese and milk are often considered as a natural source of calcium to strengthen children's teeth and bones. With that our fridge is always packed with bottles of fresh milk and array of cheese in all form such as cheese spread, sandwich cheese and belcube cheese.

The Laughing Cow cheese products have been around for many many years. It’s known for its superbly smooth and creamy taste. So in this post I would like to share a quick pasta lunch recipe which can be easily prepared in less than 20 minutes using their cheese spread and sliced cheddar to create a delicious white cheese sauce. Besides that there are also a few fun ideas of adding cheese into your daily diet. 



CHEESY PENNE WITH SALMON AND BROCCOLI
(using The Laughing Cow cheese spread and slice cheddar cheese)


[Main] Cheesy Penne with Salmon and Broccoli
This white sauce paste is less creamy and cheesy when compared to those original recipes using flour, butter, cream and cheese. It's a lighter version using fresh milk and cheese spread together with a slice or two of cheddar cheese for a sharper taste. Overall we love this dish with its colourful presentation of ingredients as well as the light cream sauce and crunch of ingredients and juicy salmon cubes. Oh ya, most important thing is not to overcook each ingredient so as to retain their freshness and crunch.

[Main Course] Ingredients for Cheesy Penne

(Yield: 2 | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 20 minutes)

Ingredients:
  • 2 Serving Of Penne
  • 200g Salmon Fillet, cut into 1" cubes
  • 100g Broccoli, cut into florets
  • 6 Portions The Laughing Cow Cheese Spread Original
  • 2 Slices The Laughing Cow Cheese Slices Cheddar
  • 150ml Fresh Milk
  • 6 Cherry Tomato, halved
  • Salt and Pepper

Method:
1. Remove the wrapper from the cheese spread and place them in a heavy duty saucepan. With a small hand whisk, beat cheese until smooth and creamy before whisking in the milk till combined.  Set aside.

Steps on preparing the ingredients.
2. Cook penne according to packet instruction and set aside.

3. With a non-stick pan, sealed the salmon cube with drizzle of oil, sea salt flakes and ground pepper on both sides for 1 minute until slightly brown. Remove and set aside.

4. With the same pan, add in broccoli and cook for 1 minute.

- You can omit steps 3 - 4 and add the salmon and broccoli straight into the cheese sauce. But for us we prefer to seal the salmon for that extra flavour.

- With the same recipe you can create different dishes such as:
a) Chicken fillet with swiss brown mushroom;
b) Shrimp and baby spinach;
C) Seafood melody with fish, shrimp, squid and etc.

5. Bring the cheese mixture to simmer; add in broccoli, cooked penne and salmon cubes. Give it a quick stir cook for another for 2 minutes.

6. Lastly stir in cheddar cheese (cut into quarters) and cherry tomato. Remove saucepan from heat and stand aside for 1 minute to allow the heat to melt the cheese.
