Pasta Primavera With a Gorgonzola Twist

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by sofie-a-toast

This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. It is somehow light and healthy tasting while still satisfying the part of me that wants something rich and creamy. I use tomatos, broccoli and peas (my favorite veggies) but I'm sure it would be just as successful with other spring-time vegetables!

Easily prepared and much enjoyed! I used tri-coloured rotini, and I enjoyed the veggies in this.I loved the gorgonzola, could happily have used more. The caramelised onions are a great idea, I could also have happily upped the onions, or even used whole tiny pearl onions. Lovely recipe that I will make again, thank you, Sofie!!!
