Cheese tip

Note on Gorgonzola:

Gorgonzola is a very strong cheese.

Those who like this taste can prepare the sauce from very ripe Gorgonzola.

For all other connoisseurs, the younger the gorgonzola, the more discreet.

Instead of Gorgonzola you can use creamier Gorgonzola products, which is finer and lighter in taste.

Cut walnuts
Cut walnuts on cutting board.

Decorate each portion with chopped and whole walnuts, add the remaining gorgonzola in small pieces to the pasta and serve.

Immediately add the drained pasta to the gorgonzola sauce in the pan and mix well.

Serve the pasta on warm plates, turning the spaghetti with a fork and placing it in the middle of the plates.

4. Tips for Preparing Gorgonzola Sauce

The most essential factor in the preparation of the cheese sauce is the temperature.

Prepare the cream base sauce.

Before you add the cheese to the sauce, the sauce must be tempered and the sauce must not boil any more.

  1. Sweat onions and garlic in olive oil until colourless.
  2. Deglaze with white wine.
  3. Mix cold cream with cornflour and add.
  4. Bring the sauce to the boil and season with a little salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and nutmeg.
  5. Strain the sauce through a fine sieve and place next to the stove. Let it cool down to 80°C.
  6. Cook the spaghetti, peel the pears next to it, dice finely and mix with honey.
  7. Crumble the gorgonzola into small pieces and stir into the sauce with a whisk.
  8. Pour off the pasta, drain well, add to the sauce and mix, arrange, serve sprinkled with a little pear honey and walnuts.

Please remember…

The delicious gorgonzola sauce tastes great as a lukewarm and cold dip with various vegetable sticks such as carrots, celery, cauliflower, broccoli and kohlrabi…

  • Two questions: where are the comments from other users? I like making use of comments from others rather than just seeing an overall star rating. Second question, I’m not familiar with cornflour. Can I use cornstarch instead? Thanks


    • Hi Heather,

      Thank you for your query, I have fixed my translation problem, of course it means cornstarch.
