Impressive and not difficult. Used gorgonzola because I had it on hand and scaled down recipe for two. Served over mashed potatoes and it was very tasty. A little salty, next time I will use low sodium chicken broth. Sauce thickened wonderfully with the butter/flour dough. Will definitely make again.
