Last night I made a simple and absolutely delicious dinner. Whole wheat spaghetti with a Gorgonzola Macadamia Nut Sauce. Served with a light salad and some garlic bread, it was a meatless night. The leftover sauce will also be good on a steak when the time comes to grill one!
Here is the recipe:
6 tablespoons Olive Oil, divided 2:4
2 shallots diced
8 cloves of garlic rough cut
A handful of fresh Italian Basil
Juice and Zest of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3/4 cup macadamia nuts
1/2 cup Parmesan Reggiano
1/4 # Gorgonzola Cheese crumbled or cubed
3/4 cup of heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Hot cooked whole wheat spaghetti
Dry roast the mac nuts in a frying pan and allow to cool completely.
