Pasta with Bell Pepper and Gorgonzola Cream

Pasta with Bell Pepper and Gorgonzola Cream

I first had something similar to this Pasta with bell pepper and Gorgonzola cream years ago in Milano.  My husband and I would go and eat at our favourite restaurant for every special occasion and this pasta was often on the menu.  Bell peppers/capsicums and Gorgonzola make for a fantastic combination: the first are sweet, while the latter is slightly pungent, so there’s perfect balance in the final dish.  It is a very quick and easy recipe and the good news is, you don’t need to go all the way to Italy to be able to enjoy it!!  Buon appetito!…
