Delicious on its own and may be varied to your taste
As a rough guide, half to three-quarters of a pint of cream is good for at least four servings.
Pesto sauce – use what ever sauce you like, whether it’s your own, fresh or frozen, or store-bought. You’ll add to your own taste anywhere from ¼ to ½ the volume of cream you are using.
For blue cheese use ian inexpensive Danish one that crumbles nicely. Use whichever one you like or find available, just don’t go to great expense – there’s no need!
Put cream in a saucepan over medium heat.
Stir in pesto, to taste.
Crumble a nice amount of blue cheese, add to pot and stir occasionally, till the cheese dissolves.
Not enough sauce?
Add more ingredients.
Not the right balance of flavour?
Really, that’s it … almost …
Though this sauce, over any cooked pasta of your choosing, is great on its own, it hits another level if you add some diced fresh tomato and grated parmesan – fresh-grated (or shaved) if possible, but I’ve been know to resort to the green-can stuff when that’s all that’s on hand.
Got fresh basil?
A few leaves on top make things pretty.
Some leftover chicken’s a nice addition on top of the dish, as is some thinly sliced rare roast beef or steak, or some leftover strips of bacon fried up and crumbled on top.
So, boil up your pasta, pour yourself a nice glass of wine and have fun experimenting with toppings, but most of all, enjoy!
