2 ounces Gorgonzola cheese
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
4 fresh sage leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1 garlic clove, peeled
1/2 cup heavy cream
Freshly ground black pepper
Cut the gorgonzola cheese into small pieces. Heat the butter, sage and garlic in a small saucepan. When the butter has just melted, add the cheese, the cream and a good grinding of pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until cheese has melted. Simmer for one minute. Taste and check if salt is needed; because of the saltiness of the cheese, probably not. Remove and discard sage and garlic before serving. Makes one cup of sauce, enough for 4 servings of pasta or gnocchi. Enjoy!
