Linguine with Gorgonzola Walnut Sauce Recipe

It was time to leave Soup recipes for a while and move on to PASTAAAAA!!  This Linguine with Gorgonzola Walnut Sauce Recipe is for those who love sweet and salty.  One Blue Cheese that I am quite fond of is the Gorgonzola Blue Cheese.  Gorgonzola Blue Cheese is a buttery and salty blue cheese that I add to my omelets, rice, and pasta sauces.  If you do eat Gorgonzola then you know that this is a salty blue cheese, so to reduce the saltiness I sometimes like to add fruit, apples to be exact.  The apple of choice is usually Granny Smith Apples I just love the tangy sharp taste of these apples.  Do you?

I remember the first time I added fruit and nuts into my salad, my father in law was shocked.  I asked him if he had ever tried something similar.  He responded by saying “fruits and nuts are not for salads,”.   My father in law is a curious man so he went and grabbed a fork and tried a bit of my salad.  He did say that he liked it but I could tell from his facial expression Nooo Nooppee Nooo wayyyy!!  I  do understand that most might not enjoy this sauce because of the apple, but how will you know if you do like it if you don’t give it a try. 🙂

Just a small note I prefer using Linguine for this recipe but you can use any type of pasta.

Have a great week and stay safe peeps!!
