Gorgonzola cheese proves the old adage that a little goes a long way! Its strong and tangy flavor packs a tasty punch without adding a lot of fat and calories. You can also try blue cheese or feta cheese in this recipe.
3 cups uncooked rigatoni pasta (9 ounces)
2 cups broccoli flowerets
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 (12-ounce) can fat-free evaporated milk
1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese (2 ounces)
1 small tomato, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 (6-ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
10 pitted ripe olives, cut in half
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Oregano sprigs, if desired
1. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. While pasta is cooking, place steamer basket in 1/2 inch water in saucepan or skillet (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place broccoli in basket. Cover tightly and heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Steam about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender.
