Gorgonzola sauce is a rich and creamy Italian sauce made with Gorgonzola cheese, which is a type of blue cheese that is known for its sharp and pungent flavor. The sauce is typically made by melting butter in a pan and adding heavy cream, crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, and a pinch of salt and pepper. The mixture is then stirred together over low heat until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth and velvety in texture.
Depending on the recipe and personal preference, additional ingredients may be added to the sauce, such as minced garlic, chopped shallots, or a splash of white wine or chicken broth. Some recipes also call for thickeners like flour or cornstarch to help the sauce achieve a thicker consistency.
Gorgonzola sauce is a versatile sauce that can be served with a variety of dishes, including pasta, chicken, beef, and vegetables. It is a popular sauce for pasta dishes like gnocchi or penne, and pairs well with hearty meats like steak or pork chops. The sauce also goes well with roasted vegetables like Brussels sprouts or cauliflower.
