Pasta with fruit? It sounds unusual but this is a delicious combination of the unique flavour of gorgonzola cheese and the sweetness of fresh pears.


Serves: 2 

  • 280g penne pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream
  • 1 large pear, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper to taste

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Cook the penne in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.
  2. Return the drained pasta to the pot; stir the butter, Parmesan cheese and Gorgonzola cheese into the pasta and place over medium heat; cook until the cheese is completely melted. Pour the cream into the pasta mixture; stir. Remove from heat and fold the pear into the pasta mixture. Top with walnuts. Season with pepper to serve.
