Gorgonzola Stuffed Celery

I got some Real Italian Gorgonzola cheese at Costco and have come up with a few recipes for my daughter's Graduation party. If you are shopping for Gorgonzola you will know it's the real thing by it's colorful foil wrapper. The taste is kind of like blue cheese but with more of a bite! It is salty, buttery, rich, and creamy..... so delicious.........
 Gorgonzola is a veined Italian Blue Cheese from the  Lombardy region.
Gorgonzola Stuffed Celery
8 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces Gorgonzola
1 whole bunch celery hearts
1/2 cup crushed walnuts (oops! I added this after I got the picture!)
Mix the 2 cheeses in a processor or mixer until creamy. Clean and cut the celery into 3 inch pieces. Fill each with some cheese. Sprinkle some walnuts on top.
Serve these straight from the fridge as Gorgonzola is best served cold.
Cheese Tray: Gorgonzola likes to be served cool so a marble cutting board helps keep it at the right temperature. Pears go well with this sharp salty cheese. If you want to serve a wine a full bodied powerful red like a Chianti goes perfectly!
