How to make Pasta alla Gorgonzola

 The Pasta alla Gorgonzola. On busy days it always helps to have a go-to  recipe that is quick and simple to prepare and delicious. 


  • 1 lb tagliatelli – or your favorite
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup walnuts –  chopped coarsely
  • salt and pepper – to taste
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves – thinly sliced
  • 2 cups gorgonzola cheese – crumbled



  1. Combine olive oil and garlic in a large frying pan and cook on medium-low for about 3-5 minutes, just until the garlic starts to color.  Do not let it burn. 
  2. Stir in the walnuts, mix well, and remove all from heat or keep on very low. 
  3. In the meantime, cook pasta according to directions but, al dente.  When almost ready, remove ½ cup of pasta water and add to frying pan. 
  4. Add pasta and cheese, mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
  5. Stir and mix well again and cook until water is almost evaporated.
  6. Remove from heat and serve your Pasta alla Gorgonzola. 


NOTE: This dish works well with tagliatelle or fusilli.  But other wide pastas work too so use your favorite or whatever you have handy.  Remember this is to be a quick and stress-free meal.  

Serve with a simple salad and in our house, we still pass some grated cheese and probably crusty Italian bread!
