Pasta with Tomato Gorgonzola Sauce

Joe and I have been making this recipe for years and years, perhaps since before we were even married. I haven’t got the faintest idea where the original recipe came from; it’s one of those hand-written recipe cards that found its way into our kitchen. We’ve tweaked it many times over the years, making minor improvements here and there. Because it reheats wonderfully, this is one of our favorite make-ahead meals. Especially when we know ahead of time that we will be in a rush after work, we make this the night before we plan to eat it. It’s better the next day anyway, after the flavors have a chance to blend. This recipe makes enough pasta that we can both take some for lunch on the third day. We love that!

    • And, would you believe that we cut the red pepper from the original recipe in 1/4! It is a wee bit spicy, though. I should have mentioned that. Try cutting back on the red pepper next time you make it. 🙂

    • Really? Why do you think he wouldn’t? If you cut back on the amount of gorgonzola even a little, you can’t taste it specifically, but still get the creamy boost that it gives the sauce. Just a thought.

  1. That looks yummy! I have a huge chunk of gorgonzola in the fridge from Costco that was supposed to go into mac and cheese, but alas, I have no cheddar. This one I will definitely try!
