Cook the pasta according to directions on package until al dente. Drain and set aside.
In a saucepan, sauté the shallot and garlic in olive oil. Add salt and pepper. Deglaze with white wine and lemon juice. Allow to reduce almost entirely.
Add the cream and the Canadian Blue cheese. Mix. Add the tomatoes. Allow to reduce halfway. Add the pasta and continue cooking long enough to reheat. Adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Arrange the spinach on four plates and distribute the pasta. Garnish with prosciutto and pepper. Serve immediately.
Use a soft, runny Brie instead of Blue cheese, or penne pasta instead of farfalle.
