Farfalle With Asparagus, Red Onion, Walnuts & Blue Cheese

READY IN: 35mins




  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Toss the pasta & asparagus with the onion, walnuts and blue cheese. Stir in remaining 1T olive oil. Add salt & pepper, to taste.
