There really is no Blue Food
Now if you mix it into something, say a dressing or sauce - Gorganzola Cream being my absolute fav - so I can't see the offending fuzz - well then okey dokey I'm in. I mean not all blue cheese is fuzzy, I admit, but some have those weird little icky looking blackish chunky bits - hang on I have rub the goose bumps off my arms...Okay, better now, I think I'll just skip the mental visuals for now!
I'm really not adventurous when it comes to food, normally I throw stuff out that has grown hair! SO imagine my surprize - first when I chose this recipe, and second when I absolutely loved it!!!
I was just browzing my fav italian cook book - Betty Crocker's Cooking Italian - when the beautiful photo caught my eye. I was sold by the photo and only slightly dismayed when I read the gorgonzola part. I figured if it looked THAT good it had to taste THAT good!
Well, I have made the recipe twice. The first time I skipped the parsley 'cause I was out, ya I know "what a chef" no parsley - sheesh. We really liked it, but I thought well, it could be creamier and it needed, um something.
I decided to try it again, this time using the parsley - should have skipped it, it was pretty strong. I also added the "creamy" that was missing by adding a little pasta water to emulsify things (that's my 50 cent word of the week!). The "something" I thought it needed was a squeeze of fresh lemon juice at the end - perfect. Even with the parsley this one was great! I'll drop the parsley and dub this one a keeper!
** Oh, and I flung some extra gorganzola on top for artistic license!
