This pasta is a cheese lover's dream! The sauce is super creamy, and the Gorgonzola cheese just puts all the flavors to the roof!

Ingredients
  • 10 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 2 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • ¼ cup finely chopped green onion tops
Directions
  1. 1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the water. Return drained pasta to the pot.
  2. 2. Whisk milk and flour together in a large nonstick skillet; add cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Heat milk mixture over medium heat while whisking continually until bubbling and thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Sprinkle Gorgonzola cheese into the milk mixture, stirring continually to melt the cheese into a sauce. Stir green onions into the sauce. Pour reserved water into the sauce; stir.
  4. 4. Pour sauce over the cooked pasta and toss to coat.
