Pasta with Blue Cheese and Walnuts Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
Nice idea but a bit bland in taste... which surprised me considering the use of blue cheese in this recipe. Maybe I'll try it again but with 1 or 2 more cloves of garlic and a different type of pasta for better texture (perhaps farfalle/bowtie?)

This was surprisingly tasty for so few ingredients. I didn't use all the bleu cheese - it would have overpowered it completely. I gave it a 4 because while it was tasty, there seemed to be something missing - it was a bit dry - maybe the bleu cheese could've been combined with some cream to make a sauce. Then again, that would defeat it being so wonderfully simple! All that being said, my husband told me I should open my own restaurant so it will go into my rotation! (no way on the restaurant though!)

More extra virgin olive oil is needed in this recipe for a smoother consistency. I used approximately 1/4 c. I also substituted the walnuts for soy nuts as they contain more protein. Puree the mixture, including the blue cheese, in a mini food processor until smooth and pastey. Rather than using this on top of spaghetti, I laid a thick layer in a soft burrito and placed scrambled eggs on top for an "egg burrito". It was absolutely delicious! The mixture may also be delicious on a toasted baguette or as a dip for vegetables. I believe there are many ways to enjoy this recipe - thank you Nancy!

I thought this recipe tasted great and it was quite easy to put together. After having it at a restaurant, I wanted to try and make it on my own. The bleu cheese gave the pasta just the right tang. I used stilton bleu cheese and it was GREAT! I also used an organic wheat pasta and this made it really tasty, too. Thanks!

Good but not a family favorite.
