Fettuccine with Gorgonzola and Broccoli
The very mention of Gorgonzola sets the taste buds tingling, and this smooth, sublime sauce doesn't disappoint. We made the pasta with broccoli florets, but the stems are at least as good. If you prefer, buy half the quantity of broccoli; then peel the thick stems and cut into eighth-inch rounds so they'll cook in the same time as the tops.Plus: More Pasta Recipes and Tips
Variations Try the sauce and pasta with asparagus, green beans, or just fresh herbs instead of the broccoli.
Strong-flavored broccoli and Gorgonzola are a challenge to match with wine. A Fiano di Avellino's intense taste can take them on, and its acidity will cut the unctuousness of the sauce.
