I loved this !! Right up my street. Walnuts delish but pine nuts would also be good. I added crispily cooked pancetta & seasoned everything well. Super simple & very delicious ! Just make sure you season.

Made this to serve two so halved but used more cheese - 75g instead of 50g. I don't like walnuts so used pine nuts. The cheese makes an amazing and really easy sauce. It was so tasty. I shall definitely make this again.

Really loved this recipe, but, used lots more stilton than suggested :o) - We didn't have walnuts and felt it needed them (or something else - ie Bacon) Really quick and easy.

I made this for one person so reduced the amounts above - still tasted a bit too buttery/oily for my liking (may be because I have been on a fat free diet for a while) but the onion and sage are beautiful together as were the walnuts. May play with these ingredients and add lemon as one person suggested.
