In Iceland they love Italian food especially fish and pasta dishes. I have had transcendent fish dishes done at Italian restaurants in Reykjavik, one fish dish with cream and white wine has stuck in my mind, yes it was that good. This blue cheese pasta is something that Icelanders like too, I am not sure if it is a classic Italian dish or a fusion but it is a tasty alternative to Alfredo and after the holidays I always have left over blue cheese. This dish is perfect! A total pantry dinner. This dish is pretty salty so I like to have steamed vegetables as a side.
- Half a stick of butter
- 4 ounces blue cheese(I used a Danish blue)
- 1 cup half and half
- 1-box of pasta*
Preparation: Melt butter on a medium heat, add blue cheese and half and half. Cook until smooth. Toss with cooked pasta, serve with LOTS of cracked fresh pepper.
*Rule of thumb: The thinner the pasta, the thinner the sauce – The thicker the sauce, the thicker the pasta! So add more or less of the cream or milk depending on what pasta you have at hand.
