Parsnips With Gorgonzola

"A wonderful combination of sweet parsnips enhanced by the piquant taste of Gorgonzola cheese. Great as an appetizer, lunch or dinner with some crusty bread and a green salad dressed with a tart vinaigrette. I served it as a side dish with a roast of pork."

    I love both parsnips and gorgonzola so no surprise that I am delighted with this recipe. I would not have thought to pair the two. It was easy and very yummy. Served it as a siide dish to roast pork and I'm very much looking forward to the leftovers for lunch. Thanks for posting it Elly!

    I love parsnips and this was a wonderful way of showcasing their delicate sweetness. The flavours all went very well together. I had been a bit afraid that the gorgonzola would dominate, but all my fears were for naught. All it did was enhance. Wonderful dish. I highly recommend!

    Elly - MERCI BEAUCOUP! This is a recipe that will be made many times in our house, as we BOTH loved it! So easy and yet such a brilliant combination of flavours - just wonderful. I used a LITTLE less Gorgonzola than listed, it was all I had left......but we loved it as it was! We ate this with crispy garlic bread and a large mixed good! Made for Adopt a Recipe Swap Photo in the Photos Forum - BUT, now I have discovered this recipe, it will be made many times again! Thanks - FT:-)
