Rigatoni With Chicken and Gorgonzola Cheese

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by Alan in SW Florida

Elegant enough for a dinner party, without a lot of fuss. Very similar to a pasta dish served at Chicago's Fairmont Hotel.

Wonderful and easy! I used whole wheat pasta adding a bit more flavor, but it really doesn't need it (whole wheat pasta to feel better about using heavy cream, on this cook's part). Served with Italian style spinach (steamed drizzled with EVVO, lemon juice, corse salt and fresh pepper) and a nice bottle of Pino Noir (that suits cream sauces). Made a week night supper a bit more special without all the work!
