  • Drizzle olive oil over the cooked pasta and toss gently to coat.

  • Heat the cream in a saucepan over low heat until warm; stir in the blue cheese, garlic powder, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, white pepper, nutmeg, oregano, and basil. Cook very gently until the blue cheese has melted and the sauce is hot, but don't let the sauce boil.

  • Place the tagliatelle in a serving dish and pour the sauce over the pasta. Top with walnuts to serve.

Fantastic!! We love blue cheese and this dish was amazing. The only change we made was we used half & half instead of heavy cream to lighten up the calorie load just a bit. AWESOME RECIPE - will definitely make again! (and again and again..) Read More

It was OK... This recipe ended up far too heavy and became cold and solidified before I knew what was happening. Flavor was alright but the sauce was too thick and didn't turn out well. Read More

This was an awesome easy recipe. 1 oz blue cheese = 3 Tbs. For this recipe I used 2/3 cups of blue cheese. We didn't have walnuts but chopped pecans went well. Thanks for the new dish! Read More
