Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute shallots and garlic until lightly golden. Pour in wine and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, and stir in gorgonzola. Add tomato paste and prosciutto; bring to a boil. Stir in half-and-half, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add pasta, and toss to coat evenly. Cook until pasta is heated through. Transfer to serving dish, and garnish with parmesan and basil.

Intriguing ingredients... Fashion-forward color combo... Urban-chic name: "Squid-Ink Pasta with Pink Gorgonzola Sauce." This recipe sets up high expectations immediately -- and the dish delivers deliciously. The hardest part about preparing this is finding squid-ink pasta, which of course, tastes nothing like squid. It's worth the effort, though -- sans black pasta, it's just Pasta with Pink Sauce. (A rich, full-bodied pink sauce, admittedly ... but the dish just won't present as dramatically as it can.) That said ... some people (like my dear, but daunted dad) simply will not accept unusually colored food, no matter how tasty. In that case, you might want to go the uncolored pasta route, and dress the plate up with, say, fan-shaped strawberry garnishes or a little unexpected something else. When I make this dish again, I might stir in some pine nuts for texture, but otherwise, wouldn't change a thing. And that includes the pasta color! ;)

This was really tasty and very easy to make. I only changed three things. 1) I didn't have shallots so I used onion chopped very fine instead. 2) I used a sodium free chicken bouillion packet in a cup of water in replace of the chicken stock. 3)I only had a 5 oz package of gorgonzola cheese. But it was enough even though the recipe called for 8 ozs.
