Gorgonzola-Walnut Fettuccine with Toasted Breadcrumbs

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.

Cooking Light SEPTEMBER 2003

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

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
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 250°.

Place bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 2/3 cup. Place breadcrumbs on a baking sheet. Bake at 250° for 30 minutes or until dry.

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.

Cook the fettuccine according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Place fettuccine in a large bowl. Add the breadcrumb mixture, parsley, Gorgonzola, walnuts, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper; toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.
