Method

  1. Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan, then add the onion and cook for 3 mins until starting to soften. Add the bacon, cook for a further 5 mins, then pour in the hot stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for a few mins until the liquid has reduced slightly.
  2. Stir in the peas, followed by the Gorgonzola, until the cheese has melted and the peas are defrosted. Quickly stir through the spinach to wilt. Drain the pasta and mix with the sauce, then serve.

Good, quick and easy supper. I used some cubed pancetta that was loitttering in the fridge. All my blue cheese melted away so whilst you got the flavour of it, I would probably only add it at the very end.

Made this for a quick supper. Used fresh asparagas, and broad beans from the garden, instead of frozen peas, and steamed these for a couple of mins above the pasta as it was cooking. Didnt have gorgonzola, so use dolcelatte. Used some of the pasta cooking liquid to make the stock. I made enough for two people so that i could have it for my lunch next week, but kept going back for more and more !!!!!!!!! :=)

I made this for my parents as a midweek meal and my Dad enjoyed it so much that he's asked for it for Father's Day. Really quick and simple yet very delicious!

Very quick to make for a midweek meal. The sauce is very rich though and after Beth's idea above, I scattered halved cherry tomatoes over the finished dish to cut through the richness of the sauce and add some colour.
