Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Recipe by  

"Autumn is the season for rich, creamy sauces, and I'm pretty sure you're going to be shocked at just how easy this one is. When your cream is reduced, your sauce is practically done. I like serving this with a stuffed pasta like tortellini or ravioli, topped with diced apple and crunchy toasted walnuts."

  1. Place a heavy skillet over medium heat. Pour cream into skillet, bring to a simmer, and cook cream until it reduces by half, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Pour dried ravioli into boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender, 16 to 18 minutes. Drain pasta, reserving a cup of pasta water.
  3. Gently fold cooked ravioli into cream sauce and turn heat to low. Mix in Gorgonzola cheese, stirring gently until melted. If sauce is too thick, thin it with a little pasta cooking water.
  4. Stir in 2 tablespoons parsley and Parmesan cheese. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with diced apple, walnuts, and 1 teaspoon parsley.

I had a delicious gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce at a restaurant and I wanted to recreate the dish at home. I loved the added crunch and flavour from the walnuts and apples. That made it better than the original dish. It's easy to make and is good enough to serve to company. I used regular cream rather than heavy cream and gnocchi instead of ravioli. I'll be making this again the exact same way.

I tried this because it sounded like a dish I always get at a favorite restaurant. I only did the sauce- cream, salt pepper, cayanne, gorgonzola. I served it over penna pasta and added fresh steamed peas!!! Yum!

I think I made at home what I pay big money for at one of our favorite high priced restaurants. This one is a major keeper. There aren't many of Chef John's recipes I don't absolutely rave about and this one is a major RAVE!

YUM! Made my own gnocchi and threw them in to the cream sauce once it was reduced, added the gorgonzola, parmesan, parsley and apple. Left out the nuts. This was incredible and was as good if not better than the $15 dish at my favorite Italian place.

I used some pasta that I got from HomeGoods---La Piana's Mezzaluna with Gorgonzola filling. I followed the recipe (and video) as written. How yummy! Thanks once again, Chef! This was really good!
