- Zest of 1 lemon shopping list
- Zest of 1 orange shopping list
- ½ cup packed flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped shopping list
- 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano cheese shopping list
- 2 cups whole milk shopping list
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter shopping list
- 3 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour shopping list
- 4½ ounces gorgonzola cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup) shopping list
- 4½ ounces taleggio cheese, cubed (about 1 cup) shopping list
- 3 ounces Fontina cheese, cubed (about ½ cup packed) shopping list
- 1 pound whole-wheat fusilli (spiral-shaped pasta) shopping list
How to make it
- Place grated Parmeggiana or Grana Padano, chopped parsley, and zests in a bowl and stir to combine. Refrigerate the gremolata until it is time to serve the pasta.
- Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add the fusili and cook until it reaches the al dente stage. Don’t overcook, since you are going to add the pasta to a hot cheese sauce, where it will cook for another minute or so. Drain thoroughly in a colander and set aside while the sauce heats.
- In a large saucepan, bring milk just to boil over medium-low heat; remove from heat.
- Melt butter in a large sauté pan and add the flour. Heat gently, stirring until the mixture forms a smooth paste.
- Add about ½ cup of the heated milk and continue stirring. Continue adding milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly, until the sauce has the consistency of thick cream.
- Crumble the Gorgonzola, Taleggio, and Fontina and add to the sauce, stirring until the cheeses are melted and the sauce is smooth.
- Remove the pan from the heat and add the cooked pasta. Stir and serve, sprinkling some of the parsley-citrus gremolata over each portion.

I have the gorgonzola and fontina on hand, and I know where to go to get the taleggio-- and I live in a town of about 40,000 in rural Southwest Missouri. I think this dish is highly accessible to most people who want to expand their gustatory horizo...morewaterlily in Joplin loved it
