Makes 4 Portions of Tortellini with Gorgonzola Sauce
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
- 8 oz Gorgonzola cheese
- 1 package (12 oz) dry tortellini (cheese or spinach)
- 2 cups cream
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- salt to taste
Pour the cream in a saucepan and bring up to a simmer on medium heat. Be sure to watch because it will boil over! Simmer (just below a full boil) for about 5 minutes. That's going to reduce the cream slightly. After the 5 minutes, turn off the heat, add the Gorgonzola, and whisk it in until melted.
Stir in the Parmesan cheese, black pepper, and fresh parsley. Toss the tortellini and hot sauce together in a serving dish. Taste and add salt if needed. Serve hot.
