Why not have your salad AND your pasta at the same time?  This unusual recipe combines both in each bite.  My husband wasn't a fan, but I thought it was pretty tasty.

Bleu & Buttermilk Penne with Arugula


Ingredients:


8 oz penne pasta

1 T olive oile

4 oz Gorgonzola bleu cheese, crumbled

1/2 cup buttermilk

2 T flat leaf pasta, diced

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 coarsely ground black pepper

2 cups fresh arugula leaves, washed, dried & torn

2 T toasted pine nuts


Directions:


1) Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and stir in olive oil to keep from sticking.

2) In a bowl, combine cheese, buttermilk, parsley, salt and pepper. Pour over cooked pasta and coat evenly.

3) Toss in the arugula and pine nuts.


Serve with crusty french bread. Makes 4 servings.
