  • 4 Servings
  • 200 g Jarlsberg® Original
  • 20 g butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 dl milk
  • 1 dl cream
  • 100-150 g spinach; save a little for garnishing

  • Fresh thyme and pepper for serving

Here is how you do it

Roughly grate the Jarlsberg®. In a large pot, bring water for the pasta to a boil. Cook pasta as directed on the package. 

Melt the butter in a saucepan and sprinkle the flour into the pot, whisking constantly. Gradually whisk in the milk and cream and bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer until the flour taste vanishes and the mixture thickens. Lower the heat and add most of the Jarlsberg®, saving a little for serving. Add the spinach, salt and pepper. Stirring regularly over low heat, allow the mixture to slowly melt together into a delicious sauce. 

Serve the hot cheese sauce with freshly cooked pasta. Top with extra Jarlsberg®, spinach, fresh thyme and black pepper.
