      Love this! I add spinach or kale the pasta also. Some times I add a dash of salt and garlic powder. Its even good with a splash of white wine. I had never tried a gorgonzola sauce and I had some at a really nice Italian restaurant and this was the closest recipe to that one that I have found.

      Great recipe! I had a gorgonzola pasta when I was in Germany and this reminded me so much of that flavor but with half the fat. I had to use skim milk instead of the evaporated because thats what I had in the pantry but it turned out wonderfully. I do WW and for my fellow WW'ers this is 9 pts per servings. Well worth the points for such a rich cheesy pasta. Yummy!!
