Spaghettini with Potatoes, Sage, and Gorgonzola

  • SERVINGS: 2
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 1/2 pound medium red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 -inch dice
  2. Kosher salt
  3. 1/2 pound spaghettini
  4. Scant 1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (about 2 ounces)
  5. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  6. Scant 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  1. In a small saucepan, cover the potatoes with cold water and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. At the same time, fill a stockpot with 6 quarts of water, cover and bring to a boil. Add 3 1/2 tablespoons salt to the water and add the spaghettini. Cover partially until the water just returns to a boil, then uncover, stir the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water.
  3. Meanwhile, in a serving bowl large enough to hold the spaghettini, mash the Gorgonzola with the butter and sage with the back of a spoon. Add the spaghettini and potatoes, season with pepper and toss gently but thoroughly. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of the pasta water if necessary. Serve immediately.

Suggested Pairing

This dish would work with a Grumello, Inferno or Sassella from a Valtellina producer.
