September 17: Saint Robert Bellarmine Pasta Salad

Italian Saint Robert Bellarmine is known for being the spiritual director, most notably to Saint Aloysius Gonzaga! And yes, I made a Gorgonzola dish for Saint Gonzaga’s feast day… And it seemed totes approps to toss it into today’s salad!

The beautiful secret about pasta salad is that you can really use whatever ingredients you have on hand. We threw in shallot, pine nuts, basil, garlic, and tomatoes… Most of which needed to be used up anyway! The only thing special I got for this recipe with a little bit of Gorgonzola.😉 I am all about a dinner that takes less than 20 minutes to prep. 🙌

Ingredients for us:
1 package of pasta
1 shallot
3-4 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup pine nuts
handful of basil
cherry tomatoes, quartered
salt and pepper, to taste
pinch of paprika
oil and vinegar, to taste
Gorgonzola cheese!


  1. Cook pasta as packet instructs, drain, and run cold water over it for several minutes.
  2. Add additional ingredients into pasta and enjoy!

Saint Robert Bellarmine, pray for us!
