This was really good. Very intense flavor so I would make sure to serve w/very crusty bread and a side dish that's lighter. I used baby portabellas (criminis) and they add a wonderful flavor. I also used homemade pasta. The sauce is not very eye friendly (very off white looking) so next time I will either try adding brocoli asparagus or maybe just parseley to give it some contrasting color. I think serving this w/ a Pinot Noir would do justice. Read More

This was incredibly bland..my husband said it was "just not exciting". I don't know how you could make it better. It tasted like a bland alfredo and I don't like alfredo so maybe that's why I didn't like it. My husband said it didn't taste like alfredo..that it hardly tasted like anything at all. It's too bad because I love bleu cheese but this was a very big disappointment. Sorry. Read More

I would rate this 5 STARS but my husband did not like it so I'm giving it 4 stars. I LOVED THE FLAVOR and I am a fan of creamy/saucy dishes and I am a huge Gorgonzola fan! I DID LOVE THIS! I think this is a love it or hate it recipe. I SUGGEST READING the ingredients and if you LOVE GORGONZOLA. mushrooms cream sauces etc... you'll love it if not this isn't for you. Thank you for the great recipe! Read More

I am a gorgonzola lover but this was a tad much for me. I made this a second time substituting 1/2 feta for 1/2 the gorgonzola and it was better. Overall very enjoyable. Read More

This is a wonderful recipe. We made it even better adding a few personal favorites. We like to add 1 chopped sundried tomato per serving.5 slices cooked and drained diced bacon per serving and.5 diced shallots per serving. Read More

I thought this recipe was very good but even better when I used shrimp and scallops instead of the chicken! Don't cook shrimp or scallops too long or else they will become dry and tough. Also add some parsley. A nice bottle of wine and you're good to go!! Read More

fantastic flavour - easy to make too. I'm not a big fan of cream sauces in general but I made this for my boyfriend and he loved it. very heavy and filling so I wouldn't eat too much of it but it's sooo good. Read More

I thought this recipe was good. However my husband thought it might be better if the gorgonzola was cut in half and 3 oz of a milder cheese was added. Read More
