Fettuccine With Gorgonzola Sauce and Broccoli

READY IN: 43mins
Recipe by Manami

This sets my mouth tingling and drooling for this dish. Can be made with asparagus, green beans or just herbs instead of broccoli. Update: 07/29/08, a viewer suggested that we use some mushrooms towards the end.Also, changed the serving size - it is more for 6-8 servings. (When we make it here at the home - the amounts have to be increased.)

Very tasty! Uses a lot of gorgonzola. Serves more like 6-8 people. Could use some mushrooms for a little boost of flavor. Easier than it looks.
