    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!  -  19 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  03 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  14 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
