Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Farro
  • 6 Tomatoes
  • 150 Grams Gorgonzola cheese Cubed
  • 3 Cups Arugula Loosely packed

Instructions

  • Cook farro in boiling salted water until it’s just the right consistency: soft and chewy at the same time.
    Follow cooking times on package instructions.
  • Cut the tomatoes into bite-sized cubes.
  • Cube the Gorgonzola cheese.
  • Wash the arugula, pat dry and set aside.
  • Place the tomatoes, Gorgonzola cheese and arugula into a serving bowl large enough to hold the farro.
  • When the farro is cooked, drain but reserve the cooking water.
  • Toss the cooked farro immediately into the other ingredients until the arugula wilts and the cheese melts.
  • Add reserved cooking water by the ladleful, just enough so that the farro is creamy.
  • Serve immediately.
