Blue cheese sauce is a rich and flavorful topping for pasta, meat or even vegetables. A little bit goes a long way, so you don't need to eat a huge portion (unless you want to, of course!). Using a high-quality blue cheese is important, since most blue cheese sauces don't have many ingredients and the flavor of the blue cheese really comes through.
If you don't already have a favorite type of blue cheese, a few to try in blue cheese sauce are: Gorgonzola, Cashel Blue, Buttermilk Blue... and Maytag Blue.

The blue cheese and butter melt into the noodles, coating them with incredible flavor. Save some cheese to crumble on top at the end along with a handful of minced parsley.
