Pasta, and what... 300!

I love a bargain. It's not a secret. The last time we were at Costco, I saw that they had Gorgonzola cheese for $1.69 / a pound. Which is a really great price.  It's usually ridiculously overpriced in supermarkets near me.   So I picked up 2 pounds of it.  I like to use it in pasta.  In particular, I make a ziti with sausage, broccoli, and gorgonzola.  It's really easy to make.  Boil the ziti pasta.  In the meanwhile, I cut up 4 links of Italian Sweet Sausage and browned it in a very large skillet.  Then toss in 2 cups of broccoli florets or a frozen box of broccoli.  Save 1 cup of pasta water and drain the pot of cooked pasta.  Add the ziti pasta to the sausage and broccoli.  Drizzle with olive oil and add a cup of crumbled gorgonzola and the reserved cup of pasta water.  Mix well until cheese is melted.  Season with salt and pepper and serve.  Serve and Enjoy!
Oh and somehow my 300th post crept up on me!  Today's post is a benchmark, I hit 300!   How quickly that came, it feels like just yesterday I was at 200. I realized that I really enjoy blogging about the garden, cooking, the house and eveything in between. Just like I did, when I hit 100 and 200 posts, I would like to do a giveaway!  I have a few ideas on what I want to giveaway but not ready with it yet.  I'll share the details later this week.  Stay tuned!
