Step 1

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Add shallots, garlic, sugar, pepper flakes and salt. Cook stirring occasionally, until caramelized and tender, about 16 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, bring large pot of salted water to boil. Add ziti and cook according to package directions, reserving about 11/2 cups water. Drain pasta and return to pot.

Step 3

Stir 1 cup of pasta water into shallots; remove from heat. Stir in spinach, tomatoes and lemon rind, just until spinach begins to wilt. Add to pasta, along with gorgonzola. Toss together and drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add additional pasta water if needed.
