Nutritional values

The custom of combining pasta and potatoes is common in Italy and Germany. This somewhat unusual pairing provides extra fiber, which supports healthy digetsion.

The hot pasta water is stirred into the sauce at the end to make the sauce more fluid. It also saves fat and still imbues the sauce with Gorgonzola flavor.
