Ravioli with Blue Cheese Cream


Here’s a delicious way to enjoy pasta that is different than red tomato sauce, Alfredo, or pesto. This recipe instead, uses blue cheese, which I tried mimicking from a lovely restaurant, Macando’s in Africa, that features pasta with blue cheese sauce.

I’m not sure how they make it or what exact ingredients they use, but having made my version a few times now, I’ve decided you can use any blue cheese ranging from Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola, or Cabrales, since each has a different flare and that’s half the tasting adventure to bring uniqueness to the table.

I’ve made it with and without parmesan, as well as with Asiago, which is good in any combination, but in either case, adding just a bit of any hard cheese helps to make a more saucy, melty base and adds a bit of salt and depth of flavor.

Tomatoes cut through the richness and brighten up the dish.

It’s so velvety and rich. One to pair with a chilled glass of white wine for sure!
