The very simple ingredients
Beefsteak tomatoes and balsamic vinegar

When we were last at Hall Place Farmers' Market, Antonio Portillo (La Sabrosa Continental) gave us this really simple pasta recipe, which is a great way to use Taleggio cheese. It should probably be made with spaghetti, but I prefer macaroni. We had this with grilled beefsteak tomatoes, drizzled with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and fresh black pepper.

to serve


  1. Slice the tomatoes in hald, drizzle with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper and grill for about 10 minutes
  2. Add the garlic and bay leaves to a pan of boiling water and cook the pasta for the time directed on the packet ( pasta cooking times for most types of pasta can be found here)
  3. Drain the pasta, reserving ½ a cup of the cooking liquor
  4. Add the pasta back to the pan with a splash of olive oil, the crumbled Taleggio and enough of the cooking water to loosen the cheese into a sauce. About 3 tablespoons should do, but if you add too much it's easy to reduce again.
