Instructions:

  1. Put pasta water in a stock pot to boil. Add salt to the pasta water.
  2. Add the butter to a pan on a medium low heat.
  3. Once butter is melted add the onion and sauté until it has softened about 2 minutes. Do not burn the butter.
  4. Add the garlic, yellow squash, and zucchini to the pan and briefly sauté, about two minutes. Do not burn the garlic.
  5. Add the half and half and cream and stir together when it begins to bubble, lower the heat and add the Gorgonzola cheese, reserve 1 to 2 ounces of some cheese for pasta garnish.
  6. Stir sauce until cheese is melted, remove from the heat.
  7. Meanwhile, cook your pasta until al dente, reserve one cup of pasta water before straining the pasta. I use a spider tool to remove the pasta to add it to my sauce.
  8. Add the blanched asparagus and the pasta to the the Gorgonzola Cream sauce.
  9. If the sauce becomes too thick, add in some of the reserved pasta water to the pasta.
  10. Salt and pepper to taste.
  11. Garnish pasta with Gorgonzola cheese, chopped parsley, and basil.

Enjoy!
