    Tortiglioni Florentine in a Gorgonzola Cream Sauce with Frizzled Prosciutto

    1 lb Tortiglioni pasta or other pasta of choice

    1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    6 slices prosciutto diced

    2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    Cup finely diced onion
    Cup thinly sliced fennel
    4 Cups Spinach, coarsely chopped

    16 oz 2% milk or half and half if you are feeling crazy
    lb crumbled gorgonzola cheese or about 2 Cups
    Cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
    Pinch of kosher salt and pepper

    1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

    2. Heat olive oil into a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook prosciutto until browned and crisped, stirring often. Usually takes between 5-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.

    3. Heat olive oil into a large skillet or dutch oven over medium heat. Saute onion and fennel until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach and cook until wilted down, about 5 more minutes.

    4. Pour in milk and heat for 5 minutes on medium high heat or until piping hot. Stir in gorgonzola and parmesan cheese. Stir until cheeses are melted. Reduce heat and stir in cooked pasta, season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and serve quickly, sauce thickens over time. Add additional milk to loosen sauce up if necessary, especially if you are re-heating the next day. Enjoy!
