Tagliatelle Pasta
with Asparagus and Gorgonzola Sauce

Tagliatelle Agli Asparagi E Gorgonzola
4 main-course or 6 first-course servings
Prep: 15 min; cook: 10 min


Tagliatelle PastaThis recipe is a flavor powerhouse made with minimum effort. Cooking asparagus in the pasta pot saves one major step. The Gorgonzola would provide plenty of flavor if tossed in uncooked, but tossing it with the pasta and asparagus mellows its pungency and contributes to a subtle, balanced blend of flavors.


1 package (8 ounces) tagliatelle pasta,
   or (1/2 package (16-ounce size) fettuccine can be substituted)
1 pound asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (4 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper


1. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package—except add asparagus 5 minutes before pasta is done.

2. While pasta is cooking, heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions, parsley and garlic in oil about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender. Reduce heat to medium.

3. Add pasta, asparagus and cheese to mixture in skillet. Cook about 3 minutes, tossing gently, until cheese is melted and pasta is evenly coated. Sprinkle with pepper.
