Table for Two Please

This past Friday, Clay told me he wanted to cook dinner for me. In the almost 10 years we have been married, he has NEVER made dinner for me. Sure, he's helped out, but never made a complete meal just for me. He even took care of getting my parents to watch the boys for the night. It was so nice!
He had got a recipe from one of his friends and wanted to try it out. I have to say it was one of the best meals I have ever had! It was delicious.
I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband that wants to take care of me.
I'll post the recipe below if any of you want to try it out. I'll warn you though, it is pretty expensive to make. We could have gone out to eat twice for what it cost to make. But, it's a great meal, and tastes just as good warmed up later! (I think I ate it 3 days in a row!)

Tortellini with Gorngonzola Cream Sauce
1/2 C. dry white bread crumbs
1/4 C. freshly grated Romano cheese
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
32 oz. whipping cream
15 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
20 oz. cheese tortellini
6 oz. grilled chicken
For topping: Mix all ingredients in medium bowl and set aside.
For sauce: Simmer cream and Gorgonzola in heavy saucepan over medium heat until cheese melts. Cook until mixture is reduced to a thin sauce consistency, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes. Add grilled chicken. Cook tortellini in boiling, salted water until just tender. Stir occassionally to prevent sticking. Drain thoroughly. Preheat broiler. Add tortellini to sauce and stir until heated through. Transfer to a large, shallow, heat-proof baking dish. Sprinkle enough crumb topping over pasta; cover lightly, Broil until top is lightly toasted.
