Pasta al Gorgonzola (Blue cheese)

Yesterday night, after a 3 week break, I went back to pole dancing class! I found out my old teacher has now been replaced by a new one, and I’m sad! 🙁 This new girl is good, don’t get me wrong, I’m just not a big fan of changes…I like my stable world…I’m weird that way…

Anyways, when I got back home it was already 8.30 pm, my bf looked at me with the starvation look. I made this easy and quick blue cheese pasta dish … it was yummy! ….

Ok, ok this is not exactly a light recipe, but look at it this way…the bikini season is over!
