Mange Tout or Sugar Snap Pea Pasta

1 (8 ounce) package dry penne pasta
3/4 (4 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 ounces Gorgonzola cheese
2 tablespoons cream
1/2 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
 
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the pasta, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, cover pot, and set aside.

Stir the cream cheese, Gorgonzola cheese, and cream together in a bowl until smooth. Set aside.

Bring another large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the sugar snap peas, and cook until crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain. Toss peas with butter. Stir cream cheese mixture into peas, and toss to coat evenly. Serve immediately over cooked pasta.
