Nutritional values

The pasta with gorgonzola sauce is not exactly low in fat, but the fat from soy cream and walnuts has a positive effect on blood lipids. The pasta provides the fibre that is needed to keep you full for a long time.

Because the Italian classic contains no vegetables, fitness-conscious people eat a fresh salad with it. This way the meal is enriched with vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances.
