5-Ingredient Pasta Shells Recipe With Spinach, Bleu Cheese & Parmesan Is Creamy Delicious

Blue cheese (and bleu cheese) lovers will adore this easy pasta recipe that works just as well on busy weeknights as it does on weekends (and even makes a statement at your next dinner party). So rich and creamy!

Complete this delicious pasta shells recipe with a salad and a loaf of crunchy bread, and dinner is served in less than 30 minutes. So easy and so delicious (and vegetarian, too)!

Cuisine: Italian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6


  • 8 ounces shell pasta
  • 1 bag (8 ounces) baby spinach
  • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions for al dente, adding the spinach about 1 minute before it's done. Drain, saving a little of the pasta water. 
  2. Combine the pasta and spinach mixture, butter and cheeses. Toss to combine, adding a little pasta water to loosen it up. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Serve with additional crumbled blue cheese and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
