Quark Help

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.
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
