Penne Gorgonzola Chicken

Like bleu cheese, I think gorgonzola is an acquired taste. You either love it or hate it. I love it! I saw this recipe on My Kitchen Cafe and I knew I had to try it. It was so good! Anything made with butter, cream, and cheese has to be good, right? It definitely isn't the healthiest meal but I think it's okay to indulge every once in a while.

Melt butter and heat to boiling. Stirring constantly, simmer for one minute. Slowly add cream and heat to a low boil. Stirring constantly, boil for 3 minutes.
