Gorgonzola Cheese, Pears, Walnuts Linguine Pasta Recipe

How to prepare linguine with pears, nuts and gorgonzola cheese. I tested how good is the pear with the gorgonzola cheese and here it the recipe of the day. I wanted to give an Italian twist using gorgonzola or similar. If you prefer a very strong cheese, I recommend: Roquefort. Enjoy it, I have thoroughly enjoyed it!

Other cheeses: you can use stilton too. If it is too strong for your taste, try using a milder blue cheese such as dolcelatte, or swap half the stilton in the recipe for some creamy, mild mascarpone.
