My True Love Gave To Me…

It all started with a package of Portabellas…

And a trip to Lovera’s Italian Market

All, courtesy of The Man Of Few Words.

When it comes to gift-giving, he throws convention out the window.  (Gotta love a guy who knows nothing would thrill his wife more than quality ingredients and time to play with her food.)

This is one of the yummiest pasta sauces I’ve tasted recently, by it’s lonesome or served as a “side” with Portabella Pork Chops (which I’ll share in an upcoming post.)

Linguine with Gorgonzola Sauce

(adapted from the recipe on the back of the package)

8 oz. Dell’Alpe Parsley & Parmesan Linguine (or linguine of your choice)

2 Tbsp. butter

1/2 c. cream (I used half & half)

1/2 c. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

1/3 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper

Cerignola and Castelvetrano olives (for garnish)

Prepare pasta as directed on package.

Meanwhile, heat butter and cream in a small saucepan.  Stir in Gorgonzola and Parmesan until melted.  (I left a few “chunks” of Gorgonzola…)

When pasta is al dente, drain and return to pan.  (Reserve some pasta water to thin the sauce, if desired.)  Pour sauce over pasta; toss to coat.  Season with salt and pepper and garnish with olives or what have you.  Serve immediately.

An unexpected gift?  You bet!  I’ve learned to expect nothing less from my true love.

Wishing you peace, joy, and gifts that tickle your fancy,

~ Kim

  1. I’ll be right over. But cuidado; I may be there to steal your thoughtful man, not only your portobellos.

    Wonderful food, and you had me with that rosemary sprig, Kimby.

    Please have the merriest of holidays!!!

    • Thank you! It turned out to be one of those lick the plate (or goblet… or pan… or spoon) sauces. But then, bleu cheese on anything ranks right up there with me — especially pasta!

    • The beauty of it, Ann, was that it was “shared joy” at the end of it. :) Will post the pork chop recipe closer to New Years — was thinking your veggie salad would be great with all of the above!

  2. Great presentation, Kimby! I love pork chops!! U got me drooling, dear. Lol!

    BTW, regarding the bug…. have u considered removing whatever new feature you’ve just installed & put it back again. It may work.

    Merry X’mas with lots of love!

    • Thanks, Shirley! And thanks for the installation tip, too. I’ll be experimenting with my technological “no-how” (ha ha) this week… be prepared for anything! Happy New Year to you and your family!
