egg linguine with bleu d’auvergne


It's no surprize that Tom DeVries gave us a recipe combining cheese with pasta. After all, his company, the R.Hirt Jr. Co. in Detroit's Eastern Market, is one of the area's finest distributors of specialty foods and cheeses. They were Al Dente's very first distributor back in 1982.

1. Cook pasta as directed in a large pot of salted water.

2. While pasta is cooking, add the extra virgin olive oil to a large bowl and cut the Bleu D’Auvergne into small pieces. Before draining pasta, retain one half cup of the pasta water.
