Pasta with Spinach, Smoked Salmon and Roquefort

On my journey I have been to the caves where the famous Roquefort-cheese is maturing. It was so impressive! And even though I am not a big fan of blue cheese, I liked the Roquefort a lot. It‘s much more creamy then others. Of course I had to create a recipe for the vankitchen with it!
