I enjoyed making this dish. This is NOT for those who dislike gorgonzola. Luckily, I adore gorgonzola! However, I'm not sure that the taste of walnuts and gorgonzola goes well with a risotto made with white wine - I think that the combination of gorgonzola and walnut is best with a cream sauce pasta, or spinach leaves in a salad. It is a little strange with a broth/wine risotto, or maybe it is just something my palate is not used to. I did enjoy this, though, and it looked lovely. This made a rich, creamy risotto - I think next time I'm going to substitute vegetables and asiago for the gorgonzola and walnut. Thanks for posting this for everyone to enjoy!
