    Serves: 2 

    • 260g penne pasta

    2. Return the drained pasta to the pot; stir the butter, Parmesan cheese and Gorgonzola cheese into the pasta and place over medium heat; cook until the cheese is completely melted.
    3. Pour the cream into the pasta mixture; stir. Remove from heat and fold the pear into the pasta mixture. Top with walnuts. Season with pepper to serve.
