Ingredients

Method

Serve with: Romaine and Radicchio Salad with Cucumber

In saucepan, combine milk, blue cheese, Parmesan cheese, cream, butter and salt ; cook over medium heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in parsley; keep warm.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until tender but firm, about 8 minutes. Drain and return to pot, reserving 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the pasta water. Add sauce; toss to coat. Stir in enough of the reserved pasta water to keep sauce loose and creamy. Serve sprinkled with walnuts.
