Green Beans with Walnuts and Gorgonzola

I made this recipe up one day when faced with an overly ambitious purchase of green beans. In hunting through the fridge, I found Gorgonzola cheese and thought, why not? It’s pretty tasty.

1 lb. green beans, washed and trimmed
1/4 cup walnuts, toasted in the oven or in a pan for 5-7 minutes
1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese
2 Tbsp vinaigrette
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper

In a medium pot, bring half a pot of water to the boil. Drop green beans in and boil for just a few minutes. Drain water, and add walnuts, cheese, vinaigrette,salt and pepper. Toss to coat and slightly melt the cheese. Check seasonings and serve.
