I have prepared gorgonzola pasta several times and this time I also wrote down a recipe that is very easy to prepare and very fast. If you also prepare a simple green salad while cooking, you have lunch/dinner ready in practically 15 minutes.

The dish is very tasty and creamy. Just be careful not to add a lot of salt, as it is already present in cheeses.

It is important that you do not overcook the pasta, really follow the packaging instructions you have. And keep an eye on the sauce, stir it a lot that it doesn’t burn.

If desired, you can add previously roasted / cooked vegetables or pieces of meat to the dish.

But it is really essential that you eat it as soon as it is cooked. However, if you don’t, make sure to save some of the water in which the pasta was cooked, slowly add it to the dish while stirring and heating to bring it back to life.
