You won’t believe this is so easy and so clean. It’s very decadent, there is a little bit of Gorgonzola Cheese, but it’s perfectly fine. Great dish to serve to guests. Pairs nicely with a great salad and roasted asparagus.

2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 sweet onion chopped finely
1/3 cup pecans chopped
