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 them into eighth-inch rounds so they'll cook in the same time as the tops.
3/4 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 pound gorgonzola cheese or other blue cheese, crumbled (about 2 cups)
2 cups heavy cream
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
1 pound fettuccine
1 1/4 pounds broccoli (about 2 stalks), thick stems removed, tops cut into small florets (about 5 cups)
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Fettuccine with Gorgonzola and Broccoli Recipe at
In a medium stainless-steel pot, combine the broth and wine and bring to a boil over moderate heat. Cook until the mixture is reduced to about 2/3 cup, 5 to 10 minutes.

Reduce the heat to moderately low and add the Gorgonzola, cream, and butter. Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring, until the cheese melts and the sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Add the salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta until almost done, about 9 minutes. Add the broccoli florets and bring back to a boil. Cook until the broccoli and pasta are just done, about 3 minutes longer. Drain.

Toss the fettuccine and broccoli with the Gorgonzola sauce, Parmesan, and parsley. Serve with extra Parmesan.


Try the sauce and pasta with asparagus, green beans, or just fresh herbs instead of the broccoli.
