As a chef , i have a busy roster with long shifts and sometimes i don’t have the time to cook or i feel a bit lazy . This is why i always keep in my freezer , bags of ravioli, tortellini or gnocchi and last time when i went shopping i found this great Gorgonzola and walnut tortellini so i bought three bags of it . So friday before going to work i opened my fridge and wondered which dish can i eat including zucchini and chorizo , and then i remembered i had a bag of tortellini left , so this is how i got this idea and believe me , it was sexy , the creaminess of the gorgonzola aith crunchy zucchini and spicy chorizo really does the trick . Off course you can try this dish with other kind of pasta like gnocchi , penne , tagliatelle ……. If next time you want a quick tasty dish in minutes , try this recipe you won’t be disapointed .
