You might think pasta, pistachios and the strong flavor of gorgonzola make for an odd combination, but it works! It is so easy to make and only takes a few minutes. The dish is quite rich so I recommend serving it as a side to a meat entree.
I served it at our Italian conversation club, Ciancia meeting and everyone asked me for the recipe!
Tip: Do not make ahead of time
