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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!

WOW the flavor and texture (with the walnuts) of this dish is PHENOMINAL!! Awesome is all I can say!!!

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.
