The Kitchen Takeover – Fusilli Gorgonzola di Papa

Absolute fantastic recipe for cheeselovers. It’s my dad’s signature dish that no one else ever cooks. I can do it, but it just never seems to taste the same as when he makes it.

Honestly, this is a recipe that you might need to get used to. I’ve only been eating it for a year or so, because I’m not a big fan of blue cheeses. But I threw all my prejudices out of the window, tried it, and loved it. The beautiful frilly fusilli is coated in a cream sauce infused with gorgonzola cheese. You really just have to try it to understand that insane flavour sensation. So simple, yet so elegant and rich.fusilli gorgonzola

If you want, you could substitute the fusilli for a different pasta, I wouldn’t advise it with spaghetti or macaroni though. The pasta that you need for this recipe has to be tough enough to actually capture the sauce, and the curved lines of fusilli are perfect for that.fusilli gorgonzola
