I was fortunate to work with my friend, Chef Lynn and make this special recipe with her. She recreated it from her favorite dish at Popolano’s and likes her version even better than the original.
Since it was simple to make and extremely yummy, I got permission to share her Spicy Chicken Rigatoni with Gorgonzola Sauce with you. Thanks, Chef Lynn!

Oh, and I made notes on how to make it without dairy and gluten too.
It’s the month of summer, strawberries and peonies.
Be on the lookout for farmer’s markets to get your freshest local berries and other produce. I have 3 strawberry plants in my garden; however, I have to be quick in order to beat the bunny family to them.
I think it’s time I put up a small garden fence.
My peonies are in full bloom for the next couple weeks. We transplanted them from the farm when my parents moved here over 20 years ago.
Mom used to fill as many vases as she had with peonies for the house. I take after my mom.
It’s a great month to spend some time sitting on a porch or patio and watching the world (or bunnies) go by. The bugs and humidity haven’t shown up to the party yet.
June 14th is flag day, so if you need to update your flag, you have plenty of time.
June 20th is Father’s Day and Summer Solstice—the first official day of summer. The Spicy Chicken Rigatoni can be made ahead of time for your celebrations.
Enjoy your June.
” Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.” —John Lubbock
