    I saw this while searching for blue cheese recipes and thought it sounded too good to ignore.

      We found this to be entirely too salty with nothing to cut the blue cheese. If I were to make this again, I would make a quick béchamel to temper the cheese and cut down on the salt level. We did not enjoy it.

      I loved this. The blue cheese melts perfectly into a nice flavorful cream sauce without the unneeded calories or fat of an alfredo sauce or whatnot. I ended up using broccoli instead of asparagus, and used rotini pasta instead of farfalle because the store didn't have any whole wheat bowtie pasta. Thanks for sharing!

      I increased the garlic as well, and had to go without the basil, but it really didn't suffer. I tossed in a little parsley for some freshness. It did take me a lot of stirring to get my blue cheese to melt because it was a harder variety. I should have paid more attention and chopped it up smaller. Really like the flavor of this, and very easy. Reheats well. Will make again.
