    I am wanting to make a pasta dish for lunch with pea's & leeks & have 2 tubs of quark in my fridge so thought I could use one to make a sauce up.

    I have no idea what to do as I have only ever used it for baking.

    Do I need to add it to stock or something? Have read before about it curdling so don't want that!! haha

    Thank You x

    I think you just add the quark near the end and cross your fingers.

    There is a lovely leek and pea pasta recipe in the current magazine, but it uses philadelphia. The pasta is cooked with a stock cube to give it more flavour.

    By the way, the philadelphia used is garlic and herb. You might want to add some herbs etc to your dish to take the tangy taste of the quark.

    Hi - yeah I make that one but was hoping to be creative & use my quark. Guess I could just subsitue it with quark & add lots of garlic myself.

    Just wanted to know how others use it in pasta dishes really.

    Thanks for your help though :)

    I tried using quark in pasta last night and it was a little bit thick! I might have done it wrong but I think next time I'll mix it with some fromage frais orrr possibly a tiny bit of milk. I put a little bit of parmesan in too to give it more of a cheesy taste. Garlic/herbs also taste nice!

    I actually copied the recipefor leek and pea pasta out the magazine and used quark instead to make it syn free. I cooked the pasta in veg stock, then took a few big spoonfulls of the stock water out of the pasta pan and added it to the quark in a seperate bowl.Just keep adding a bit of stock until you mix your quark smooth. I added chives to the quark to give it a bit of a kick and it turned out fine.
    Here's a pic of the outcome
