Pasta Cream SaucePosted in : International, Italian, Sauces on by : admin Tags: chives, cream, gorgonzola cheese, pasta sauce
Pasta Cream Sauce is the simplest recipe imaginable: it contains just three ingredients and takes 5 minutes to prepare and cook. This is a recipe for a pasta sauce that will impress guests and isn’t too difficult.
1/2 pint (300 mls) of good quality cream
4 ozs (110 grams) of Gorgonzola cheese or another blue-veined cheese
2 Tbsp of chopped fresh chives
Using low heat, heat the cream in a small saucepan.Reduce the heat the moment you see the first bubbles appear and simmer, just below boiling.
Crumble the cheese into the hot cream and gently stir to help it dissolve. Please note that it does not need to dissolve fully.
Add the chopped chives at the same time as the cheese.
Pour over the pasta and serve immediately.
The lady I sent this to used Gnocchi, but this will also go well with Fettucini or other pasta.Do not add salt or seasoning to the sauce; the cheese takes care of that.
