and Balsamic Reduction
INGREDIENTS for 4 people
200 gr Gorgonzola Dolce Baruffaldi
100 gr ricotta
70 gr butter
50 gr fresh spinach leaves
10 gr pine nuts
10 gr Parmesan cheese
100 ml balsamic vinegar
80 gr sugar
Extra-virgin olive oil
In a bowl, mix 50 g of butter softened at room temperature, the ricotta and the Gorgonzola.
Pour the mixture into a terrine mould lined with cling film and place in the refrigerator for two hours.
Reduce the balsamic vinegar in a pan for 2 minutes, add the sugar and cook for another 5 minutes, until it thickens.
