Chef Matt Basile’s Zucchini Gorgonzola with Cream Sauce

Zucchini Gorgonzola with Cream Sauce

Delicious and easy. Anyone can make if you follow along, give it a try! Your tummy will be happy you did.


4 cloves garlic

About 1.5 zucchini

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup grated parmesan

1/4 cup butter

1-2 tbsp creamy Gorgonzola, depending on your taste for it.

And about a quarter cup of starch water from the pasta you make.

Cut zucchini into 8 prices and place on baking sheet with garlic.

Drizzle with olive oil and roast until soft at 450F – shouldn’t take longer than 8 minutes.

Then add that plus the oil from the pan a food processor or high-powered blender.

Then add all the other ingredients including the pasta water. Blend until smooth. You want all the

zucchini skin to be pulverized – that’s what gives the sauce its green color. Fresh basil and

or some sweet peas would also be great.

Once creamy, stir in with you pasta and add salt to taste.

Finish with extra parm ’cause really, you can never get enough.
