A very rich side, sinfully delish served with grilled pork, or any meat really! From The River Cafe, London. This sauce would be good with grilled pork tenderloin, or steaks, with a spoon... :-)
- Melt the butter very gently in a medium sized sauce pan and then add the gorgonzola. Heat until the cheese is softened, but don't allow it to become liquid, you want it just warm.
- Add the mascarpone, fresh basil, a little salt and some freshly ground pepper and remove from the heat.
- Briefly blanch the asparagus in a generous amount of boiliing salted water (about 2 minutes). Drain the asparagus and dry.
- Put the asparaus onto warmed plates. Pour over the sauce and serve with the fresh parmesan.
