This rich sauce is a wonderful complement for gnocchi, fettuccine, and other hearty pastas. Try mixing in some steamed broccoli or broccolini when you toss the pasta with the sauce.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat and add the shallots, coriander, and pepper. Cook until the shallots are transparent but not brown, 2-to 3 min. Add the cream and bring to a boil. Simmer gently until slightly thickened, about 5 min. Remove from the heat and stir in the Gorgonzola. Set back on the heat only long enough to melt the cheese. Toss with hot pasta, or cool and refrigerate for up to four days. Reheat gently before use.
