      Great recipe! If you like spicy food and blue cheese this is the BEST recipe. A great dish for pot luck. I used mushrooms too! Will definitely make again. Served it with side salad. See photo.

      This was terrific! I had to use white beans & didnt have enough blue cheese, but it was really good! I also chickened out on the whole tsp of pepper flakes & used only 1/2 and that was a mistake. Should have used it all. Definitely a keeper, especially for Fall/Winter. Thank you for sharing Christine!
