I've done similar recently, except a less snooty variety of cheese [*].
Mozzarella1 makes for a nice refreshing entremets; once heated you're left with just a bland blob of fat (some salt added). No wonder Italians use grana padano or parmigiano on their pasta. If you don't like the pungency of roquefort you can try gorgonzola. And on pizza even Swiss cheeses like gruyère (but a good one) or sbrinz:

1 The somewhat similar scamorza affumicata is much more interesting:

I happen to have some Bel Gioioso brand Wisconsin Gorgonzola on hand right now, but I didn't think to put it on pasta. 8)

I suppose Wisconsin Gorgonzola is illegal in Italy (or maybe the whole EU), but not worth smuggling (unlike some illegal substances). :BigGrin3:

You cannot have Wisconsin Gorgonzola. Pandering to European culture as usual. Cut those apron strings.

Invent your own stuff. Come on. You can do it. :mrgreen:

Just because the cheesemakers' ancestors came to America doesn't mean they can no longer make cheese the way they did on the old country.

It's just economic protectionism. So fuk'm.

After Europe goes Muslim it will only be in America that one will find these things. :p

Slightly color minced onions in a dab of olive oil in a non-stick pan. (I'd add garlic at that point…) Put to one side, replace with the gorgonzola cut in pieces, heat till melted (low heat!). Add ad lib. black pepper, chives, parsley (some grains of cumin if you like that). Add cream if you want a more fluid sauce. Return the onions to the pan, let simmer for 1 – 2 minutes while stirring, pour over the pasta. (Or add the pasta to the gorgonzola if you're the lazy type.)

Bon appétit! Of course it will destroy your diet. :mrgreen:

I think I may wing it with a slightly simpler recipe that includes garlic.

Basically what I did before but with Gorgonzola.

Not really. Its its name, and it's from the region where it's made

I see the cynicism, the hatred; not so much. You guys share a hottube of hyperbole. Stop making bubbles.

In the spirit of the Japan thread and the Russia thread, I think we need a 'Murica thread.

Thanks Witness.

Just slapped a slab of that gorgonzola on top of some otherwise cheeseless baked macaroni. :Hungry2:

Murica is an awful country

Why do so many people from other countries want to get in?


Because other countries are much much worse

Not bad, but I'm guessing it won't happen for psychological reasons.
