DescriptionThe variety of cheeses in this upscale and tasty dish make it dangerously delicious! The chiles in the dish, as well as the flavored pasta, add a subtle punch and contrasts nicely with the cheeses and the herbs.
At a glance
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add the salt and the olive oil. Add the dry pasta and cook according to the manufacturer's directions. Drain thoroughly and place the pasta in a large bowl lined with paper towels.
Mix the mascarpone, the olive oil, and the ground peppers together in a small bowl. Remove the towels from the pasta and mix in the mascarpone. Then, add the gorgonzola, fontina, parmesan, chile, parsley, thyme, oregano, savory, and salt and toss the mixture lightly. Microwave the mixture on low for 2 minutes to warm it up.
Arrange a bed of mixed greens on each plate and mound the pasta-cheese mixture on top. Serve immediately.
