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 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 a...

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 ...

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, b...

Delicious! I took the suggestion of others and used half feta and half gorgonzola, as I was afraid it would be too overwhelming otherwise. Will definitely make this one again.
