Flora Pennoni Rigate with Gorgonzola Cheese & Brussells Sprouts

Bold. Earthy. These are two words that perfectly describe the blended flavor of Brussels sprouts and Gorgonzola cheese coming together on plate combined with the bite of red onion and black pepper to bring out this rustic recipe. Summer is the perfect time of the year to sit back and enjoy a light dish that brings out the pastoral flavors of Mother Earth’s bounty.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of Flora Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 pound brussels sprouts—trimmed, loose outer leaves reserved and sprouts thinly sliced

1 long red fresh chile—halved, seeded and sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick

1 teaspoon chopped thyme

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 pound Flora Organic Pennoni Rigate Homestyle Pasta

4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, preferably dolce latte, crumbled

Directions:

In a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add the sliced brussels sprouts, chile and thyme and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the sprouts are just tender, about 3 minutes. Add the reserved sprout leaves, cover and remove from the heat.

Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the penne until al dente. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup of the pasta water. Add the penne to the skillet along with the pasta cooking water and cook over moderate heat, stirring to coat the pasta with the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the pasta to bowls, top with the Gorgonzola and serve right away.
