As you may or may not know, I’m on day 20 of my Sugar-Free September Recipe Challenge where I share sugar-free recipe versions of yummy foods everyday while also eating no sugar all month.

When I do a sugar free cleanse/challenge, I like to extremely limit refined carbs as they can viciously spike your blood sugar levels. BUT, I do allow myself a sugar-free treat day each week in which larger portions of refined carbs aren’t extremely of limits to me, and on this day I like to enjoy some sugar-free comfort food - usually in the form of pasta.

My favorite go-to is my Comforting Creamy 3-Cheese Pasta w/ Garlic, Olive Oil and Chili Flakes which is the exact recipe I'm sharing today!

This pasta is seriously restaurant quality!

Why go to a restaurant and spend top dollar for a ‘quality pasta’, when you can just make a top quality delicious plate of pasta at home, with a way cheaper price tag! AND you’ll know exactly what ingredients you’re eating.

Some restaurants even add sugar to their so called top quality cheese sauces and many store-bought cheesy sauces contain tons of added sugar - and even corn-syrup..., yes they add sugar to a cream sauce, what does it even need that for?!

My Creamy 3-Cheese Pasta w/ Garlic, Olive Oil and Chili Flakes, is sugar free, made from pure ingredients, fresh flavors, and tastes like a delightful plate of comfort. The red pepper chili flakes and add a tangy flavor without overpowering anything.

I use a combination of asiago, parmesan, and romano which gives the sauce a flavourful cheesy taste, and the cream cheese provides that creamy mouthful flavour we all love. The olive oil establishes a rich depth to the food and finally, who doesn’t love a bit of garlic in their pasta?

The aroma when I cook this dish is crazy good!

Though, the craziest thing about this pasta is the silly name that we use when referring to it in my household: Spadino pasta.

You’re going to be laughing your head off when I tell you the story behind the creation of this scrumptious recipe.

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you know that I'm constantly blabbing on about my Netflix (and occasionally Hulu) binging habits. I love to snuggle on the couch with my older family members, have snacks and binge on fun TV shows especially during a holiday weekend.

Two years ago during New Years weekend, my family members and I found a show that we got addicted to watching called Netflix’s Suburra (do you ever find yourself getting so involved in a show that you talk to the TV, thinking a character will hear you?!)

In this show there’s a character with the nickname Spadino, and in season one he made a pasta with chili flakes, olive and garlic. Long story short one of my brothers became desperate to have this pasta in reals and begged me to try it out - of course eventually he convinced me. BUT, (and there’s always a but) on the day I planned to cook this pasta, before I made it he asked if it could be creamy (because why not?) with the same flavors in the show.

So I expanded on the chili, garlic and olive oil concept and created this very recipe. Now in my house Spadino Pasta, after the character who inspired the dish.

 
 

Enjoy this Creamy 3-Cheese Pasta w/ Garlic, Olive Oil and Chili Flakes as much as I do - it’s so good that I sip on a couple of spoonfuls of the sauce while it’s cooking (I won’t tell if you do too)!

With all of that said, here’s your recipe!
