Pasta With Broccoli and Blue Cheese

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Brisket in Roses

I used to make this a lot during high school. I had a few vegetarian friends (who ate dairy) who always asked me for this.

Delicious! I needed something in a hurry and wanted a change from my usual pasta with broccoli, garlic, anchovy & crushed red pepper. The blue cheese and broccoli really complement each other, and the whole thing went together in under half an hour. I wouldn't change a thing (except I did use about 5 garlic cloves and only half a pound of pasta). I used cabra azul (blue goat cheese) here in Spain. It was perfect for two as a main course, with a bit left over for lunch tomorrow. I'll be checking out your other recipes soon.
