Pasta with Radicchio & Gorgonzola

Pasta with Radicchio & Gorgonzola

Ingredients

  • pasta penne
  • a small portion of Gorgonzola cheese (or Roquefort – or another blue cheese if you just can’t find it)
  • 1 head of radicchio
  • Parmiggiano Cheese
  • a bit of onion
  • salt

Instructions

Put a big pot of water on to boil. Wash the radicchio and cut it into really small chunky slices. Start cooking the radicchio in a medium-sized frying pan, then add the onion. Next, pour some olive oil (find the best one you can), and add salt.

When the radicchio becomes darker and softer, add some drops of wine and keep cooking. When the water starts boiling, add a handful of salt and enough pasta for two. Add a small handful of salt, then stir and cook pasta according to directions

As a final step, add the gorgonzola to the frying pan where the radicchio is cooking and stop the fire. Stir it up so that the gorgonzola melts. ¡Voila! The sauce is ready.

Finally, once the pasta is well cooked, pour it into a colander and mix it with the sauce directly inside the frying pan. Mix well, add some freshly ground parmiggiano and serve.
