My family and friends love it. Thanks for sharing!

If its too hot, but you enjoyed otherwise, perhaps you can a use a sauce less hot ;-) we often adjust recipes to our particular taste.

Have a beautiful day!

After reading the reviews, I guess my expectations were too high. If I make again, I'll use less blue cheese. Sauce was very hot.
