Penne Gorgonzola With Chicken and Roma Tomatoes

Although I usually post healthy recipes, this one does not fall into that category! It is rich, creamy and decadent. If you like cream sauces, watch out!! This is a recipe my husband developed based on a dish at an Italian restaurant. I think his is just as good.


  1. Grill or broil chicken breasts; slice into thin strips.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  3. Toss with olive oil, return to pot.
  4. While pasta and chicken are cooking, melt butter in medium saucepan, heat to boiling, stirring constantly, boil 1 minute.
  5. Slowly add heavy cream, heat to a boil to reduce, stirring constantly.
  6. Boil for 2 minutes.
  7. Reduce heat, add Gorgonzola, parmesan and nutmeg.
  8. Stir until melted.
  9. Serve sauce over noodles, top with chicken and chopped tomatoes.

This was outstanding! It tastes just like my favorite dish from Johnny Carino's. My husband loved it. I added fresh sliced mushrooms sauted in butter. Thanks for sharing!

I was searching through the Johnny Carrinos menu when I saw Chicken Penne Gorgonzola. I thought that it would be a great dish to make. So I searched through a few recipes. This one seemed to be the simplest. It was absolutely amazing. I cooked it for my boyfriend and his friends and they just raved about how good it was. I made garlic bread to go with it. I would definitely make this recipe again.

Altogether , pretty good. I will make again but will only put a dash of Nutmeg 1 tsp was way too much for me. My family didn't complain, they all inhaled it and took seconds!
