Stringozzi Pasta with Broccoli, Gorgonzola and Walnut Recipe

This recipe is from the back of Giuseppe's Stringozzi made with 50% farro flour, and 50% durum wheat pasta. Although we made this recipe with 50% whole grain farro pasta, you can also use regular stringozzi.


approximately 1 pound of stringozzi pasta

1/2 pound broccoli flowers

1/2 cup walnuts - chopped

1/4 pound gorgonzola cheese

1 tablespoon butter


1. Boil broccoli in boiling water until al dente, then strain and set aside.

2. Cook pasta in boiling salt water until al dente. About 10-12 minutes.

3. While pasta is cooking, melt cheese and butter in saucepan. Add cooked broccoli and mix well. Add cooked pasta to sauce, mix well and transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with walnuts and serve.
