For the blue cheese sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk , at room temperature
  • 5 oz. (140g) creamy Gorgonzola cheese , cubed
  • salt and pepper , to taste

For the pasta:

  • 1 lb (450g) boneless skinless chicken breast , cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil , divided
  • 1 lb (450g) button mushrooms , sliced
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas , thawed
  • 1 lb (450g) penne pasta


The blue cheese sauce:

  • In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. When it has melted, add the flour and whisk until smooth. Add the milk in batches and keep whisking until smooth.
  • Bring to a simmer and simmer for a couple of minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add the Gorgonzola cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.

The pasta:

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet and cook until the chicken is cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Set aside.
  • In the same skillet, heat the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil and saute the mushrooms until tender and golden, for about 10-12 minutes. Add the peas and stir. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile, in a large pot, cook the pasta according to package instructions. Drain.
  • Transfer the pasta to the mushroom and pea mixture. Add the chicken and the blue cheese sauce and toss. Add some more salt and pepper if needed. Enjoy!


  1. For a quick version of this recipe, you can use 3 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken instead of cooking your own.
  2. If your skillet isn't large enough, it may be easier to combine all the ingredients in the end in a large bowl.
