Blue cheeses are perfect for people who enjoy bold, tangy flavours.


Ingredients

1 Box (375 g) bow-tie pasta
1 shallot, minced
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil
1/4 cup (60 mL) dry white wine
2 tsp (10 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cups (500 mL) 35 % cream
1/2 cup (125 mL) Canadian Blue cheese
2 plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeds removed and diced
8 cups (2 L) baby spinach
4 slices prosciutto, julienned
4 tsp (20 mL) finely diced red bell pepper
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

Cook the pasta according to directions on package until al dente. Drain and set aside.

In a saucepan, sauté the shallot and garlic in olive oil. Add salt and pepper. Deglaze with white wine and lemon juice. Allow to reduce almost entirely.

Add the cream and the Canadian Blue cheese. Mix. Add the tomatoes. Allow to reduce halfway. Add the pasta and continue cooking long enough to reheat. Adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Arrange the spinach on four plates and distribute the pasta. Garnish with prosciutto and pepper. Serve immediately.

Tips

Use a soft, runny Brie instead of Blue cheese, or penne pasta instead of farfalle.
