  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Cook the penne in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.
  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. 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.

This will be a five star recipe with a few changes. It would easily serve three people, and if it was part of a whole meal, probably four. Next time I will make the sauce in the pot before add...

Very good! Loved the interesting flavors. Pear was a bit too crispy in the mix--will try again with the pears sauteed. Needed a lot more gorgonzola and parmesan for my taste.

I loved this! I'm a big fan of anything involving cheese, so it was a pretty sure bet. Still, I was pleased that it was so good. Even my husband, who really doesn't like Gorgonzola, tried it, an...

Literally the BEST dish I've ever made, to date. EVER. I used Gnocchis for the pasta. Also used only 1 tbsp butter and half & half instead of cream, but didn't miss the extra fat. Otherwise don'...

Excellent! Even with using 2% milk instead of cream and using less butter, it still was quite amazing!

This is definitely a 5 star recipe because it took a whole 20 minutes to make and it was so full of flavor (my husband couldn't stop eating it.) I used a 1 1b. bag of whole wheat penne pasta, a...
