The amount of red pepper flakes made this dish inedible. The recipe should call for using an amount to taste. I love spicy food, but this was way too much and over-powered all other flavors.

Way too much gorgonzola for our liking. Perhaps it depends on the type of cheese and your tastes.

This was delicious! We loved it although the 1 T. red pepper flakes was a bit too hot for me. We'll adjust it next time.

Flavorful!!! Though mine came out a little watery. Maybe I will use a little flour next time for a thicker cream, but watery and all it was DELISH!!!

you can adjust the amount of gorgonzola cheese to your liking. I add more to mine than the recipe calls for. do the same with the red pepper flakes. I tend to kick it up more than most [I posted this recipe.]
