This is a recipe for creamy chicken Gorgonzola pasta sauce. I love Italian food, good pasta and this sauce is one of the best I’ve ever had.

We stayed at Wine Relais Feudi del Pisciotto in Niscemi, along the southern portion of Sicily. 1629405858_971_Creamy-Chicken-Gorgonzola-Pasta-Sauce Niscemi is a remote town – a couple hours’ drive from our ferry landing in Messina.  But so worth it!

This is a beautiful hotel with a vineyard on the premises, my friends. Staying in a location like this is such a pleasure. Just being in the presence of such beauty made me feel pampered.

There is no limit to the riches that may be found in Italy.

There were a total of ten rooms in the hotel.

On the first night, we were the only ones there. I think there were a few more rooms filled on the second night.

Take a look out the window of what used to be the stable at night. That’s the kind of stable I’d like to live in!

Those doors, too!

Breakfast — even on the day where we were the only guests – was plentiful and amazing. 1629405859_91_Creamy-Chicken-Gorgonzola-Pasta-Sauce Fresh fruit, thinly sliced salami and prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and other cheeses, yogurts, cereal, fresh juices, various breads, sliced tomatoes and much more.  Most importantly (this is how you know you’re being pampered) there was a chilled bottle of prosecco for our enjoyment.

Jeff was on a business trip, so there was no indulging (for him!).

We ate both evenings at the hotel’s excellent restaurant. 1629405859_519_Creamy-Chicken-Gorgonzola-Pasta-Sauce

Since we were in Sardinia, I’ve been a huge admirer of gorgonzola.

One of my favorite pizza toppings is gorgonzola, so I was delighted to find it on the menu. I really liked a pasta meal with the creamy gorgonzola spaghetti sauce. It was incredible.

For the following several weeks, I kept thinking about that spaghetti.

Finally, when visiting Alyssa and Zach in Idaho, I decided to make a gorgonzola pasta dish.

I was surprised how easy Creamy Gorgonzola Pasta Sauce was to make! The cheese does all the work. Shhh, it's our secret! |

It was a lot simpler than I had anticipated. The creamy gorgonzola adds a lot of flavor and texture to this dish.

Folks, gorgonzola spaghetti sauce is a calorie-dense dish. It’s true that a little goes a long way.

I used pre-washed baby spinach since it was easier. This meal may, of course, be made with any fresh spinach.

And then there were the walnuts…

Please follow through on this. Before serving, just a sprinkling over the spaghetti. They complement the gorgonzola well!
