Pear Gorgonzola Pasta

Gorgonzola Pear Pasta / Busy Mom's Helper

Flash and I have a couple that we’re very good friends with. Her and I are so similar, and our hubbies are also like twins. It’s hilarious when we all get together, since it’s like hanging out with a better version of yourself, who gets your humor, interests, everything. Well, she got accepted into medical school, so they had to move away this summer. As happy as I am for her (and a tad jealous), we miss hanging out with them.
Before they left we had one last double date to a local Italian restaurant. Flash ordered a Gorgonzola Pear pasta dish and absolutely fell in love with it. Since we just invested in a HUGE case of pears, I decided to give one a try. I was amazed at how easy it was!

18 oz. Pasta (we used penne, but I’m sure you could use any)
4 tbsp. Butter, cut up
1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
3 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1 cup Heavy whipping cream
2 large Pears, peeled and cubed
1 cup Walnuts, chopped

Cook the pasta according to the directions. Drain.

In a separate saucepan, heat the butter, parmesan and gorgonzola until completely melted.

Add the cream and stir.

Mix the pear pieces into the pasta; stir in sauce.

Top with walnuts to serve.

Notes: We added cubed chicken, and it made it even more satisfying.
