    A super-quick meal that takes only 15 minutes to make. This pasta dish takes advantage of the wonderful marriage of walnuts and blue cheese. Spaghetti is topped with sauteed garlic, walnuts and blue cheese. Perfecto!

    I gave this 5 stars even though hubby didn't really care for it. I think you need to be a real lover of blue cheese to love it. I did make a few modifications. I mixed 1 tbs of flour with 1/4 cup of chicken broth, then added the remainder of the can to the garlic and walnuts. Then I stirred in the flour and broth and ooked until it made a nice sauce. I'm a sauce junkie. I used it over Ronzoni wheat pasta and the sauce really holds it's own even with the wheat pasta.  -  17 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent recipe, especially if you love blue cheese! Added some tomatoes and diced chicken to make it a little heartier and a little extra oil and cheese to compensate for the extra ingredients. Also substituted bowtie pasta for spaghetti so that the sauce would stick to the pasta better. Tried this sauce on ravioli as well and loved it! Will definitely make this again.  -  03 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is something I would expect to get at a fine restaurant!  -  09 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
