    I made this for a side dish with some pork chops. I love the combination of the flavors. Very good. I have been eating the leftovers every day. This is not a dish for everyone though, only for those that love gorgonzola cheese.

    I knew I had a winner when my husband couldn't wait to comment on how good it was. This is very easy and a quick fix. I did use whole wheat spaghetti and somehow forgot to add the balsamic vinegar but am anxious to try it with it. Even my kids loved it-especially the sweet onions! What a different taste from what we usually have...thanks so much!

    Excellent - I used Rosenberg Bleu cheese (didn't have any Gorgonzola on hand) and it was excellent. I browned the onions with the garlic, removed them from the pan to an oven proof dish, crumbled the cheese on top, covered the dish and kept it warm in the oven until serving the pasta. The onion, garlic cheese flavor is wonderful. Thanks MysteryGirl for a fast, easy and very tasty recipe

<p>I am one of the early members of Zaar joining in October 2001. It was instantly my favorite site even though there were only about 5000 recipes. Back then the original owners Troy and Gay ran the site and they had a lot of interaction with the members. I miss them. <br /> <br />Through the years it still remains to this day my favorite go to site and the one that I send all of my friends and family to when they need anything.</p> 8724616"
