Bleu Cheese Pork & Pasta

Jump to Recipe

Every once in a while, I find myself with an idea I just can’t not try. I had this idea to make a bleu cheese sauce over pasta and ultimately settled on pork for the protein. When I say that this sauce was outstanding – I really mean it. I think I could have eaten it by the spoonful. It would be a great dip for breads, soft pretzels, on a steak. Bleu Cheese Pork & Pasta needs to be on your meal plan for this week! What’s even better – its ready in under 30 minutes.

I know bleu cheese isn’t for everyone. It has that funky cheese flavor that doesn’t sit well with some people. This sauce would actually be a great way to give bleu cheese a chance. You get the full flavor of the bleu cheese but it is not so in your face. And the familiar flavors of pasta and pork really bring it all together. I guarantee that everyone will be doing their best to sop up every single bit of this sauce with the pasta and pork.

This is a full meal deal, so I don’t think you need any additional side dishes. If you want to stretch it or try to create leftovers (good luck, lol), you could add a bread side. I would go with a classic bread roll, would be so good to sop up any extra sauce on your plate. A salad would also be lovely with this, I think a Caesar would work well.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
