Zucchini Carrot Saute With Gorgonzola and Walnut Cream Sauce

“This is a dish I came up with when I wanted something sorta like pasta, but veggie instead. :) It's not, um, well, lowfat... but hey, balance in your diet is the key, right? Other nuts can be substituted for walnuts - pecans or pistachios are also tasty! This dish by itself is a rich, lower carb plate, but it's also very good over pasta.”
