Lemon Pasta a São Jorge Cheese

Lemon Pasta a Sao Jorge Cheese

I love anything with lemon and one of my favorite cheeses is São Jorge making this dish one of my all time favorite’s. “Queijo São Jorge” is made with raw cow milk on the Azorean island of São Jorge where the lush pastures for grazing allows for a vast production of cow milk. An easy main or side dish for any occasion. If you can’t find Sao Jorge Cheese try Spanish Manchego cheese as a substitute.


1 pound pappardelle pasta

1/2 cup Sao Jorge cheese (grated)

2 lemons (zested and juiced)

1/2 stick of butter (melted)

1 tablespoon olive oil


4 tablespoons fresh parsley (finely minced)


Cook pasta in salted water, and drain. Place back into pan on low heat. Mix the lemon zest and juice with the butter and add to pasta. Mix gently. When ready to serve add parsley.
