Penne Gorgonzola Chicken

Wow! This was very tasty! My youngest two kids really enjoyed this one too! Belle didn't like the cheese sauce. It had a little strong flavor to it from the cheese, but it was really good! Maybe a little less gorgonzola next time for her :-)

Got it from My Kitchen Cafe.

Penne Gorgonzola Chicken

3 chicken breasts
1 lb. penne pasta
½ C. butter
1 pt. heavy cream
4 oz. gorgonzola, crumbled
¼ C. shredded parmesan
½ tsp. nutmeg

1. Season chicken with salt and pepper and grill (I used my indoor grill pan). Slice into thin strips. Bring water to a boil and add pasta. While pasta is cooking, make the sauce.
2. Melt butter in saucepan, heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Simmer 1 minute being careful not to let the butter burn! Slowly add cream and heat to a low boil to reduce, stirring constantly. Boil for 3 minutes. Reduce heat, add gorgonzola, parmesan, and nutmeg. Stir until melted. Serve sauce over noodles and top with chicken.
