This Fettuccine with Gorgonzola sauce recipe shouldn’t take long to make at all. If you love gorgonzola cheese, you’ll love the sauce it makes. It’s rich and creamy, but what the hell don’t I make that isn’t. And of course the final touch is the fresh grated Parmesan cheese which is added to the sauce to make it even more richer and creamier.
Gorgonzola cheese is a blue veined Italian cheese which can be buttery or firm. This cheese is named after the small town of Gorgonzola were it was first produced and is frequently used in Italian cooking. Currently gorgonzola is produced in the Lombardy and the Piedmont regions of Italy. It can be stirred in to risotto or used on top of a nice pizza to give it a distinct flavor.
For this Fettuccine with Gorgonzola sauce recipe I like to use fresh spinach pasta. You can either make it at home or buy it at the store. Just visit my Making Pasta section to help you with the homemade stuff.
