Q: What are twins favorite fruit?
Pears and blue cheese are a classic combination. The sweetness of the fruit pairs (pears!) perfectly with the salty cheese. Add pasta, sausage, spinach, a bit of cream and some crunchy almonds and you have an elegant, delicious and different dinner.
Pear And Turkey Sausage Rigatoni
8 ounces uncooked rigatoni
2 Italian turkey sausage links (4 ounces each), casings removed
2 medium pears, sliced
2 cups fresh baby spinach

1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese, divided
Toasted sliced almonds
1. Cook rigatoni according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, cook sausage over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into large crumbles. Add pears; cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned.
3. Drain rigatoni; add to sausage mixture.
4. Add spinach, half-and-half and 1/4 cup cheese; cook 3-4 minutes or until spinach is wilted, stirring occasionally.

Nothing makes me happier than hearing a song for the first time and falling head over heels in love with it.
‘I Don’t Dream’ is the debut single from London-based band Freddie Fiction.
I love the mysterious masked singer’s lovely voice and the haunting lyrics.
