Penne Chicken Gorgonzola

One of Wes’s favorite dishes at a local restaurant uses Gorgonzola cheese as part of the topping… and he’s a little obsessed. He sought out some other recipes using Gorgonzola and came across this one for chicken penne {two of my favorite elements in a meal!} It definitely has a unique flavour, but it was exactly what Wes was looking for {and thankfully, I liked it too :)}
