Pasta Riscossa with Radicchio & Gorgonzola

Pasta salads remind me of warm weather and blooming flowers. I have spring fever and had fun making this Pasta Riscossa with Radicchio & Gorgonzola to bite the bug. It helps if you pour yourself a little glass of white wine (you have to use it in the pasta anyway). I found the recipe on Martha's site.

1 med shallot minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
8 ounces assorted mushrooms
1/4 cup white wine
3 tbls fresh chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
3 tbls lemon juice
1/2 head radicchio
2 oz. Gorgonzola

Boil Salt water & Pasta
Drain well
Separate and cool on cookie sheet in fridge

Saute mushrooms, shallots, and red pepper flakes in olive oil & white wine.
When tender add 1/2 head of sliced radicchio, flat parsley,lemon zest and juice. Take off heat.
Let radicchio wilt.

Add pasta and Gorgonzola.
Serve at room temperature.
