Recipe For Pea And Bacon Ravioli With A Blue Cheese Sauce

I made pea and bacon ravioli to go with my blue cheese sauce. There is something about blue cheese that I love! Not just the smell, which my friend’s children call ‘stinky’ but the lovely taste and texture. I have tried blue cheese from all over the world, and I love Gorgonzola, Roquefort and our very own local Blue Rock. Use the best cheese you can afford and if possible, get a local cheese – it is a good way to support your farmers.

  1. I wasn’t really a blue cheese fan until my son-in-law introduced me to a local (Nova Scotia) cheese called Dragon’s Breath Blue. It’s fantastic and converted me! Thanks for sharing this recipe with Presto Pasta Nights.
