Gorgonzola, Pear and Bacon Pasta

This pasta dish is amazing, and VERY rich, so don't under estimate it!

The best way to start a lazy afternoon....

Serves 4 - 6 (Easily 5)

500g pasta (I used tubular spaghetti)
1 Tbs oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
5 bacon rashers, sliced
2 pears, cored, peeled and chopped into small cubes/match sticks
1 cup white wine
300mL cream
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped in half
pepper, to season
parmesan cheese, grated, to serve

Cook pasta until al dente, drain. Meanwhile, fry oil, garlic, bacon, pear and wine; stirring until pear is soft.
Add cream and blue cheese. Stir until cheese melts.
Add pasta and walnuts and stir until well combined. Season with pepper, and serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

This meal would be even better with rocket added when plating up.
