One of my favorite pasta dishes happens to be the easiest dish to make, pasta with Gorgonzola sauce. Start with fresh, quality ingredients and you can’t go wrong.
Here’s what you need, to serve one person:
Spaghetti, 100 grams
Gorgonzola cheese, 60 grams
Butter, 20 grams
Sage leaves (fresh), 5 finely chopped
Parmesan cheese, grated
While your spaghetti is cooking in boiling, salted water prepare your sauce. Put the ingredients in a saucepan and cook until hot and sizzling. Done!
Drain the pasta and reserve some of the cooking water. Toss the spaghetti in the Gorgonzola sauce. If it’s not creamy enough add a tiny amount of the cooking water.
If you wish, you can sprinkle the pasta with grated Parmesan cheese. I don’t as the sauce is so rich and tasty it really doesn’t need it.
Note that there’s no salt in the recipe; Gorgonzola is naturally salty so it’s unnecessary.
A creamy sauce like this one adheres beautifully to a long, thin pasta. Other sauces work better with a short, tubular pasta variety (penne, rigatoni, etc.) when you need the pasta to hold the sauce.
Feel free to vary ingredient amounts to suit your individual taste. If you’re a Gorgonzola lover use more of it! Same goes with the sage and butter. Buon appetito!
