Pasta, Veggie & Blue Cheese Salad

This salad can easily be made with gluten-free pasta as well. If fresh peas are available, buy two (or more!) bags and freeze the extra for future use. They’re delicious in season and can be added to many recipes. Blue cheese varies in taste intensity by brand; a simple way to tell if it’s really strong is to sniff the package.
