3/4 pound Fontina cheese, grated (about 3 cups)
1 1/4 cups milk
3 egg yolks
3 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces, at room temperature
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 pound fusilli
4 zucchini, (about 1 1/2 pounds), seeded and cut into 1/4-by-2-inch matchstick strips




In a medium heatproof bowl, combine the grated cheese and the milk. Allow the mixture to stand for 20 minutes and then drain off the milk, reserving 1/4 cup. Set the bowl with the cheese over a saucepan of barely simmering water, or transfer the cheese to the top of a double boiler. Whisk until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the reserved 1/4 cup milk and add to the melted cheese with the butter, whisking. The mixture will separate. Add the salt and pepper and continue whisking until the sauce is almost smooth, about 3 minutes longer. Do not cook too long or the mixture will curdle. The sauce will not be completely smooth.

Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the fusilli for 10 minutes. Add the zucchini and bring back to a boil. Cook until the zucchini and pasta are just done, about 3 minutes longer. Drain. Toss with the fonduta.


Notes:
The classic Piedmontese fonduta combines fontina cheese, milk, egg yolks, and butter into a silky sauce that’s usually topped with thin slices of white truffle. Traditionally, fonduta is served with toast or fried polenta. Our version (minus the truffle)

Tips:
Wine Recommendation: Do not try to match this dish’s richness; go for contrast instead. Piedmont’s own Nebbiolo della Langhe, a spicy, earthy red wine with subtle hints of truffle, is what you want.

Pepperoni - sliced thin, sauteed until crisp - is a tempting addition to this traditional combination of greens, vegetables, and feta cheese and makes the salad substantial enough for dinner.

Regular white mushrooms are excellent here; portobellos or wild mushrooms would be great, too.
