Farfalle With Asparagus, Red Onion, Walnuts & Blue Cheese

35 mins (prep 20, cooking 15)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
My girlfriend from Long Island,NY passed this recipe along to me. It was from "Newsday", her local newspaper. I would suggest following the recipe as written. I have used pinenuts & vidalia onions and the flavors fell flat. UPDATE 10/10, I have made it twice now, using walnuts and red onions makes a huge difference. I like adding the red pepper flakes for kick!
