This was one of the best meals I've ever made. SO good, and fairly easy to make too!
*Made for PAC Spring 2008* Delicious! I used gorgonzola for my cheese because I thought it sounded good, and it was! The walnuts add a nice crunch as well. A wonderful combination of flavors and texture, thanks for sharing :)
