  1. In large saucepot, prepare pasta in boiling salted water as label directs. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Meanwhile, in 3-quart saucepan, melt margarine or butter over medium heat; add onion and cook 8 to 10 minutes, until tender, stirring occasionally. With wire whisk, stir in flour, black pepper, ground red pepper, nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in milk and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until sauce boils and thickens slightly. Boil 1 minute, stirring. Stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Remove saucepan from heat. Place frozen peas in colander; drain pasta over peas and return pasta mixture to saucepot. Stir in sauce and blue cheese. Transfer pasta mixture to deep 3-quart casserole. In small bowl, toss tomato halves with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Top casserole with tomato halves. Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly and top is lightly browned. Sprinkle with walnuts before serving.
