Penne Pasta in Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Servings: 4


2 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, smashed, chopped
1 cup vegetable or chicken stock
1 pound penne pasta, cooked al dente
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup (6 ounces) crumbled Wisconsin gorgonzola cheese
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh Italian parsley

Cooking Directions:

Warm a 10-inch noncorrosive sauté pan. Add the butter and melt until lightly brown. Add the onion and garlic; cook until translucent. Add the stock and cook until three-fourths reduced. Add the penne. Toss and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cream and the cheese. Bring to a boil; cook 2 minutes. Add the lemon juice to thin the texture slightly. Season with the pepper and sprinkle with the parsley.

Serve with warm, crusty bread and a spinach salad.
