Blue cheese based pasta salad recipe

I love the Whole Foods smoked mozarella, but at $7.99 a pound I feel like I could try to do a decent job on my own for cheaper.

Looking for a recipe that also satisfies the following requirements...
1) Can make in bulk, will last 3-7 days (6-14 lbs).
2) Whole wheat pasta, preferably something you fork rather than twirl
3) Maybe incorporates some veggies and meats
4) Easy to make

If anyone's ever had the "Southern-style Cobb Salad" (I don't know why they call it that) from Kroger which is basically penne with chicken and some kind of blue cheese dressing, that's what I mean. looks amazing but it incorporates eggs, which I think will only last a couple days right? I guess I could just cut out the eggs...mayo will last long enough though right?

  1. It's not necessarily traditional but I love to add blue cheese to alfredo sauce. Perhaps you could do a cream based sauce with added blue cheese.

    1. Uh - what does "blue cheese" have to do with "smoked mozzarella"?

      Your post doesn't make any sense.
