Sweet caramelized pears, warm toasted pecans, and fresh greens mixed with rich gorgonzola and mustard vinaigrette for a hearty pasta salad.
In a jar, shake together the vinaigrette ingredients. Set aside or refrigerate.
For the pears, melt the butter in a medium saute pan and add the sugar, stir in the pears and cook for about 6-7 min. or until the pears are tender and slightly browned. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl add the noodles and some of the vinaigrette, toss to coat. Add in the greens, pecans, cooled pears and toss. Plate topped with the gorgonzola and more dressing if you like. You will have leftover dressing for another salad.
