Simply Tasty: Goat Cheese Pasta

Happy Tuesday ya’ll!

I’m guest posting at one of the first blogs I ever religiously followed, Make it & Fake it! Check out my cookies over there!

I have an odd obsession with goat cheese. I don’t need it everyday but once in awhile, the irresistible urge to eat it will overcome me and I’ll come home with 10 oz of goat cheese with crackers. Anyhoot, if you love goat cheese like me (and avocados and asparagus), this recipe will rock your world! Loving lately: Goat Cheese Pasta!

Recipe adapted from Smitten Kitchen.
Ingredients

  • 1 bag of rotini pasta
  • 1 pound of asparagus (1 bunch)
  • 5 oz of goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 avocados
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Boil pasta.
  2. Cut asparagus into 1 inch pieces.
  3. While pasta is boiling, put goat cheese in a large bowl.
  4. Add olive oil and 1 tablespoon grated lemon to goat cheese. Set aside.
  5. 2 minutes before pasta is fully boiled, add asparagus.
  6. Cut avocados into 1 inch cubes.
  7. Drain pasta and asparagus and while still warm, toss with goat cheese mixture.
  8. Add salt, pepper and fresh lemon juice as needed. Lastly, add avocados.
  9. Enjoy!

This recipe is so simple and makes so much pasta, perfect for dinner and 2 days worth of lunch! For the working gal like me, that’s two thumbs up.Ā {This is a pretty goat cheese friendly recipe so keep that in mind if you aren’t really fond of it.}
