Whole Wheat Penne with Chicken, Gorgonzola and Arugula

And asparagus. And walnuts. The original title filled the title space to the max so I had to leave some out. I’ve been majorly craving stinky cheese lately so I apologize for all the blue; hopefully you’re team stank and are welcoming these recipes. This pasta is delightful AND quick – you should make...

Blue cheese, Bacon and Spinach Salad Pizza
