Pasta Gorgonzola

I know, I know I haven't been blogging lately!
I have been busy: working, looking for gasoline
for my car, hanging out with friends, going out
to eat, attending football games, traveling to
see a baby be christened and napping!
But tonight I have a moment so........
There is a local restaurants that serves
a pasta dish called Chicken Gorgonzola.
I 've tried to create this dish a few times
now but haven't been able to get it exactly
right.
Here is the latest version of the dish
minus the chicken but plus a few healthy
vegetables. But of course keeping the best
part of the dish - gorgonzola cheese!
Pasta Gorgonzola
4 ounces uncooked fusilli
1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup of half-and-half
4-6 tablespoons Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper to taste

kale, chopped and precooked
chopped, cherry tomato
Grated parmesan for the top


This was a great dish.

The sauce is a little heavy but the

veggies add a light touch.
