Ingredients

  • 300 ml Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 100 grams Gorgonzola
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • Cracked Black Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a large saucepan start by melting the butter on medium heat. When fully melted add the minced garlic. Once fragrant (but not burnt) pour in the Heavy Cream and turn the heat up high. Make sure to whisk the cream so it does not burn, and to also incorporate the melted butter.
  • When the cream starts to bubble, add all of the Gorgonzola , and keep whisking until the cheese has fully melted into the sauce. Continue stirring for 3-5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
  • Add the Cracked Black Pepper and give it another stir, and the sauce is finished. At this point you can pour it into a ramekin to cool and serve with Crudité, or if using this as a pasta sauce, you can add the pasta directly to the pan and toss it around a bit.

Notes

An easy way to crumble any blue cheese is to take a paring knife and begin to poke into the block of cheese. When you're about a centimeter in give it a 90 degree twist and a chunk should fall off. This is also a good way to get Gorgonzola crumbles for Pizza or Salads!
