Pasta with walnuts and blue cheese

Pasta with Walnuts, Blue Cheese and Chives

  I know everyone is dieting and trying to shed the excess kilos from the festive period, but this is my entry into Pasta Please Challenge for January, run by Jacqueline from Tinned Tomatoes.  This months theme is “Cheese” and vegetarian, to fit in with Jacqui’s vegetarian blog.

So what better combination than Blue cheese with walnuts.

Its creamy, smooth and rich, so beware, don’t fill your plate with too much, because then you will feel guilty going back for seconds.

Pasta with walnuts, blue cheese and chives


Any of the following blue cheeses are perfect for this dish.
Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton, Irish Cashel Blue,  Danish Danablu, or Spanish Picon.

    Gorgeous! I’m a huge cheese gal and especially love blue cheese. I’ve never used it for pasta and I bet it turns out deliciously especially with the nuttiness of the walnuts!
