Gorgonzola-Walnut Fettuccine with Toasted Breadcrumbs

Photo: Karry Hosford

Toasted walnuts and crumbled Gorgonzola cheese enhance weeknight Linguine with Garlicky Breadcrumbs. It's the same easy recipe--with different pasta and a little less garlic and oil, so the blue cheese and walnuts stand out.

Ingredients

  • 1 slice day-old hearty white bread (such as Pepperidge Farm), torn
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 250°.

  3. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic, and cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove garlic mixture from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Return pan to heat. Stir in breadcrumbs; cook 6 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring mixture frequently.
