Pasta with gorgonzola is a classic northern Italian dish that originated in Lombardy, where gorgonzola is made. Italian gorgonzola is not as sharp as many other blue cheeses and makes a delicious, richly flavored pasta sauce without being overpowering. Make sure to use the creamy gorgonzola dolce and not the sharper aged version.

Ingredients

Method

  1. Fill a pot for the pasta with about 6 quarts of water, place over high heat, and bring to a boil.
  2. Put the gorgonzola, milk, and butter in a 12-inch skillet. Season with salt and place over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the cheese has melted completely. Add the cream, raise the heat to medium-high, and cook until the sauce has reduced and thicken
