Blue Cheese Bacon Pasta
Sometimes I make this. And I always wonder why I don't make it more often. After all - it's pretty divine. (But not very healthy, which is the reason I *don't* make it so much, after all.) I'm not giving an exact recipe - you need to do this the way you prefer. I can't tell what blue cheese is your favorite, or how much fat you allow yourself in your diet. But the bare bones here is plenty of crispy bacon, pasta boiled in well-salted water, and some kind of cheese sauce. The easiest way to achieve the sauce is to melt butter, and then melt the cheese into it. Finish with a little milk, cream, or water from the pasta. You can also use a ready-made cheese sauce (mild) and add the blue cheese into that. Not bad at all, either way.
