Reader Margee Berry, of White Salmon, Washington, combined the best flavors of pub fare in this recipe for hearty blue cheese noodles. We prefer it with a beer that's a little bitter, such as an IPA, but feel free to use whatever you have in the fridge. You could also omit the beer and use a little of the pasta water if you like.
