    I made this for Labor Day Weekend and boy the taste is phenominal....Very elegant. Got the recipe out of Cusine at Home Magazine....Putting here for safe keeping. Try and find the creamy gorgonzola cheese or soft.

      I'm not sure what happened, but this didn't work well for me at all. I think part of the problem was that I didn't have any conchiglie, so used orecchiette. I actually hesitated before adding it to the boiling water thinking the texture would be all wrong, and unfortunately that was the case. I also thought there was way too much tomato sauce, but then I'm not a big fan of it. Overall, the sauce was kind of slimy and other than the gorgonzola which was quite strong (and I love gorgonzola) it lacked flavour even with adding dried chillis. The pasta was really heavy with the sauce. My fault, not the recipe, <br/><br/>Sorry to leave a less than positive review. Looking at the list of ingredients the dish sounds tasty, so I might try it again some day using the right pasta and less tomatoes and gorgonzola. If I do, I will update.

      Wonderful recipe! Easy to make and really elegant. I had to make two changes: Used roquefort in place of gorgonzola and Greek sheep yoghurt in place of heavy cream (both because I can't have cow's milk produce). I have had gorgonzola sauce before and know that with roquefort it is a bit stronger, but combined with the tomato sauce it does not make too big a difference. I will definitely make this recipe again! Thanks for posting!
