    Miss Annie's Note:

    This is a great pasta dish if you like Gorgonzola cheese. Combined with the tomatoes and basil, it makes a wonderful dish. We enjoy it with a crisp green salad, or spinach salad, and garlic sticks.

      Miss Annie, this pasta dish is so incredibly good, I can't imagine that it has not been reviewed before now! It only took a short while to prepare and we enjoyed it so much! The only change I made was to use a 28 oz can of plum tomatoes instead of the 14oz can. I don't think I would want to use less after tasting it this way! Just the right mix! I did use the fresh basil and parmesan cheese. I just loved the gorgonzola cheese! It won't be long before we are having this recipe again! Thanks for another wonderful supper, Miss Annie!

      Made just as written, I was actually quite happy with the tomatoes as listed, but then I am a gorgonzola junkie! Rich, yes, but fabulous, we loved this, a real keeper. Easy and quick to put together, a wonderful meal easily prepared after work, that's what I like! Thank you, Miss Annie!

      This recipe was definately an easy one. I also doubled the the tomatoes to 28oz, which was delicious and added fresh mushrooms. I did, however, think the gorgonzola should be cut in half. I personally thought the taste of the cheese overwhelmed the whole dish. It was so rich, I could only eat a small portion. I'd make this recipe again, but cut the cheese in half.
