Ziti with Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes, and Gorgonzola Sauce

This is such a delightful little dish to put together! Not at all time-consuming. Some of you may shirk from some of the woefully misunderstood ingredients (gorgonzola cheese and half and half), but, it's all in the proportions, people! This recipe comes from Cooking Light, and is just delicious.
