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!

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.

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.
