Cooking Tips
*Try substituting the gorgonzola for one the whole family enjoys…
**When cooking pasta, use plenty of boiling water with a little vegetable oil and a pinch of salt. Cook until pasta is tender but still firm to the bite (al dente). Drain quickly and add a small amount of butter or oil before serving. This helps the pasta stay moist, and it won’t stick together.
