AURICCHIO Provolone Cheese Recipes


I love cheese I am quite the cheese fiend and I love recipes with cheese in and on ! and I think back fondly to my holidays in Italy which involved a lot of cheese dishes well when in Rome as the saying goes . I used some AURICCHIO Thin slices of mild Provolone cheese 100 g in a variety of ways and this month at Ocado the cheese is on offer 

Thin slices of mild Provolone cheese 100 g.
Thin slices of strong Provolone cheese 100 g.
Thin slices of smoked Provolone cheese 100 g.

These are all on offer to buy or any 3 for £6.00 from 17th Feb - 16th March. 


80 g of macaroni pasta per person ( to serve 4) 

500 ml milk 

2 tablespoons of plain flour 

Knob of butter 

Mustard teaspoon or 2 of 

4 slices Provolone cheese

80 g Cheddar cheese 

20 gParmasan

Knob of spread/butter


Preheat your oven to 1800 c

First cook the Marconi and then set aside 

Add the flour in a saucepan and add the spread/butter over a low heat

Stir to form a roux 

add a little of the milk and stir until smooth 

Keep adding the rest of the milk 

Whisk as necessary add in the cheese the Cheddar and the Parmesan 

Put the cooked macaroni in an oven proof dish then pour over the cheese sauce 

Cook for 30 minutes 

Makes some croutons and sprinkle over the top of the macaroni cheese add over the cheese slices and bake for a further 15 minutes 

You can switch up the taste of your crotons by perhaps as I did cooking them straight after cooking some bacon to impart some extra special flavour into them.

I also do like the occasional burger


500 g good quality mince 

1 small onion diced up

1 egg

seasoning to taste

salad items to taste


Mix the mince with the diced onion 

and bind with the egg

Divide the mince into 4 piles roughly about the size of a tennis ball

The flatten then to an acceptable width with the plan of your hand 

 Then cook on a grill for about 10 -15  minutes
