Tomato Gorgonzola Pasta

A creamy bright delicious pasta that super simple to make but sure to please the whole family!


Please don't let the gorgonzola scare you away from this recipe! It adds a beautiful velvety creaminess but you wouldn't know there was gorgonzola in there if you didn't know there are gorgonzola in there, I promise!

Prep Time: minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Yields: 4 servings


What You'll Need:

For Sauce:

3 garlic cloves 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 4 cups cherry tomatoes ½ teaspoon salt 1/3 cup tomato sauce (passata)

4 oz Gorgonzola cheese ¼ cup fresh parsley


Pasta:

1 pack penne pasta

Notes: I prefer whole wheat for flavor and nutritional value.

However, any pasta shape will do though, angel hair is lovely with this too.



Method:

Add garlic cloves and olive oil on stove top over high heat. Once oil gets hot, reduce to medium. Add tomatoes after garlic cooks down, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. And ½ teaspoon of salt. Cook for 15 minutes stirring as you go. Take out garlic and add 1/3 cup tomatoes sauce. Simmer for additional 5 minutes. Turn off heat and sprinkle with gorgonzola cheese and fresh parsley.


Add Pasta to boiling water and cook until al-dente, on medium high heat. Drain, reserving ½ cup of pasta water and set aside.


Combine Pasta and sauce together in pot, adding reserved starch water as necessary to make sauce more creamy.
