Castello Gorgonzola

While still embodying the classical “Blue Bite” and piquant flavor, the taste is slightly more salty and the texture is firmer, making it easy to crumble into sauces or over salads, pizzas and pastas. Keep an eye out for Castello Gorgonzola in your local grocery store!


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Step 2

In a large bowl, toss cauliflower florets with oil, salt and pepper. Spread onto prepared pan and roast for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.


Step 3

In a large high sided nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat and sauté sausage, onion and garlic, breaking up sausage with spatula for about 8 minutes or until golden. Stir in cheese, cream and parsley; bring to a simmer.  Stir in roasted cauliflower and keep warm.


Step 4

Meanwhile, in a pot of boiling salted water, cook gnocchi for about 5 minutes or until they float to the top and are tender throughout. Using a slotted spoon or small sieve lift gnocchi out of water and add to skillet and toss to coat well. Crumble more gorgonzola over top and add chopped parsley for garnish to serve, if desired.
