    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    My girlfriend from Long Island,NY passed this recipe along to me. It was from "Newsday", her local newspaper. I would suggest following the recipe as written. I have used pinenuts & vidalia onions and the flavors fell flat. UPDATE 10/10, I have made it twice now, using walnuts and red onions makes a huge difference. I like adding the red pepper flakes for kick!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook pasta in plenty of salted boiling water according to the package directions. Three (3) minutes before the pasta is done, add the asparagus. Drain.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, over medium heat, toast the walnuts in a large dry skillet until they are aromatic and lightly browned. CAREFUL not to burn. About 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Once cooled, either leave halved or do a rough chop but leave some big pieces.
    3. 3
      Over medium heat, heat 2 T of olive oil in a large skillet, add onion and cook until onion is softened and translucent, about 7-9 minutes. I prefer to cook longer until they are caramelized.
    4. 4
      Toss the pasta & asparagus with the onion, walnuts and blue cheese. Stir in remaining 1T olive oil. Add salt & pepper, to taste.
