Gorgonzola Spaghetti

Serves 2-4


This is my partner’s recipe for gorgonzola spaghetti, which they managed to adapt successfully into a vegan form after deciding they would no longer eat animal products. I’m really, really not much of a cook (though they are!), but this is a really, really easy and tasty comfort meal that we can both make and enjoy.



Ingredients:

  • 1 package of spaghetti

  • 1 wedge of either gorgonzola cheese OR Honestly Tasty Veganzola Blue “Cheese” (you could try your luck with another vegan option but I can’t guarantee it’ll melt well)

  • Butter or plant-based butter substitute

  • About 2 TBL of unsweetened yogurt or creme fraiche (or vegan substitute, you get the idea)

  • Salt and black pepper


Instructions:

  1. Cut the gorgonzola into small cubes.

  2. Prepare the spaghetti according to the instructions on the package. Drain the spaghetti and put the drained spaghetti in a pot over a burner at low heat.

  3. Mix the cubes of gorgonzola gradually into the spaghetti, along with a generous chunk of butter. Stir continuously until the cheese and butter have melted into a creamy sauce and all the pasta is evenly coated.

  4. Turn off the burner and mix in a big spoonful of yogurt/creme fraiche to cool it down and add creaminess to the sauce.

  5. Add salt and black pepper to taste.
