The other day I was craving bleu cheese and then stumbled upon this post. Since farfalle pasta is my favorite shape, he had me sold. It was a quick easy recipe, I wanted to whip it up, but as always a few things I wanted to change. I added some ingredients, changed some of the steps, etc…

Gorgonzola Pasta

Gorgonzola Pasta

1 c. heavy cream. 1 c. Gorgonzola, 1 lb. farfalle, 2 shallot, 1 Tbsp. butter, 2 c. arugula, 1 c. cherry tomatoes, 4 pieces of turkey bacon, 1/2 c. chopped walnuts, fresh shaved Locatelli Romano cheese

Boil a pot of water. Cook turkey bacon until crispy, crumble and set aside. Mince the shallots and saute with butter. Add crumbled turkey bacon, halved cherry tomatoes and chopped walnuts. Add cream, Gorgonzola, chopped arugula, salt and pepper, stir until creamy. Add pasta to water and cook according to package directions. Turn sauce to simmer. Drain water from pasta and toss with cream mixture. Plate up and top with fresh shave Locatelli.

*The original creator used tri-color farfalle pasta I wish I was lucky enough to get that in my area!

*The original creator served his dish with a glass of red wine, I drank Chardonnay with mine.

*I was lucky enough to have the sunshine help me take a nice picture!
