Penne with Gorgonzola Cheese and Tomatoes

Top Review by JackieOhNo!

First, let me state that I am quite put off my gorgonzola cheese. That being said, this recipe was delicious (although not for the diet-conscious)! I couldn't find the right size can of Italian plum tomatoes, but I did find Italian cherry tomatoes. Everything else was exactly as posted, and it was absolutely terrific. Definitely company-worthy! Thanks for sharing this Italian delight. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
