My Take on Chicken Gargonzola Pasta



It's pretty easy and oh so tasty. The flavor of the sharp Gorgonzola mixed with the flavors of prosciutto, asparagus, and cream makes for a lovely dish.

Ingredients:
2-3 grilled and diced chicken breasts
1 cup asparagus tips
1/2 cup diced prosciutto
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Gorgonzola cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 stick of butter
salt and pepper to taste
1 box of Penne pasta cooked al dente

Directions:
Melt butter in saucepan. Add cream and hit to just boil adding Parmesan and Gorgonzola cheese just to a boil stirring constantly to avoid burning. Grill Chicken and boil pasta 8 minutes adding asparagus for the last 4 minutes. Drain and add sauce to pasta. Add prosciutto and grilled chicken. Serve and enjoy the goodness.





What is that drink in the background? Well that was sparkling cider, with thawed frozen raspberries, and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was a hit! Thanks for stopping!

  3. Oh yum. And it's asparagus season too. I'll have to make this soon to use all all the asparagus I bought.

  4. Looks delicious although I may have to swap out the gorgonzola as my hubby is not a fan. :) I like ALL kinds of cheese though...and with the prosciutto I bet it is so tasty. :)

  6. So, was Josh OK with the blue-ness of the cheese in this dish or did you cream it out?

  7. Kade, I don't think Josh understands what bleu cheese is, or maybe since it was Valentine's day he was lying, but he thought it was the best dish ever. I did add extra cream.

    Come take a look at my new blogs of Island life!
