Olive Garden’s Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo Pasta

Yesterday I posted on Olive Garden’s Chicken and Gnocchi soup. The night I made that soup for Max, I also tried out another Olive Garden recipe: their Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo Pasta.

My small apartment kitchen was literally a regular Italian hotspot. I was prepping and cooking for about two hours. To my surprise, I actually enjoyed it. All that hard work paid off because we had yummy restaurant quality leftover for a few days. Totally worth it!
