Like that? Try This: Linguine with Gorgonza Cream Sauce & Green Beans Recipe

Pin It PIN IT!

Longest title in all the land. I really should just label this pasta “linguine with ALL THE THINGS!” However, to keep things profesh, I’ll stick with my mouthful of a title. Regardless of the title, this is something y’all gotta make. I mean, Gorgonzola cream sauce. Really, do you need more reason than that?

This pasta is so f*&()*(^(& good, guys. Really. The use of the gorgonzola gives the sauce a tangy, bold flavor which compliments the freshly steamed green beans and linguine perfectly. Like a boss, if you will.

It’s such a perfect meal for date night. Or Saturday night. Hell, even just a plain ol’ Monday night. It’s comfort food done with a gourmet twist. Plus, it’s lighter than traditional Alfredo, so if you like that, you gotta try this.

Plus, it was the first time I used my fancy rustic white bowl, so I’m even MORE excited about this pasta. How cute is that bowl? Oh, and it cost less than $10. Yep. On Overstock. Of all places. Who knew? Alas, I digress. This pasta? ES MUY BUENO.

Y’all, make this. And make this now.  YOU CAN FIND THE RECIPE HERE! And because I know how much y’all love the nutritional stats (okay, that’s just me, I’m a nutrition nerd), they are below. Enjoy!

    How about calling it Gonzo Pasta? Because it looks soooo good, it's gonzo! ;) I love the tang of blue cheese but would never have thought of adding green beans to it.

    I can totally eat this whole pan directly from the pan. I love Gorgonzola cream sauce and now I can make my own. I love the color the green beans gave to this dish. Lovely!
