Was very yummy and quick and easy to make. Also an ideal way to use up leftover cheese.

This is so simple and delicious. I made it after Christmas and added a little leftover cream. Will definitely make this again.

Really nice this. What I tend to go for is one finely chopped onion, some St. Agur(really creamy, yet strong blue), pine/walnuts, some penne, dollop of single cream and bacon. Really handy as a quick dinner or a salad for a party

Quick, easy and very good. Used roquefort instead of stilton and added cooked chopped pancetta.

Loved this dish! - I didn't deviate from the main recipe. It is an amazingly savoury perfect supper dish - in moments. I fear it could be habit forming (but walnuts *are* a super-food, aren't they????)

Made exactly to recipe and thought it was really quick and easy to make, and very tasty. The other suggestions sounded good too and will try one of those next time. Also thought that some dried mushrooms would make a nice addition.

I made this with bacon instead of walnuts, some shredded cabbage, and some creme fraiche, which made it a really substantial supper. And I added lemon zest as suggested. Really nice.

Delicious and so easy to make, the second time I made it I substituted the walnuts for crispy smoked bacon and added some parmesan shavings to finish the dish nicely.
