Most of the pasta dishes on this website are best served as entrees, but pasta can also make a great side dish to serve along side some of your favorite main dishes. So today I thought I would share one of my favorite pasta side dish recipes. It is light and full of wonderful flavors. Let me start by saying, I am a huge fan of the herb and garlic cheese spreads. Most commonly they are served along side meats, veggies and crackers, but for this recipe I added it to hot pasta so it melted and lightly coated the pasta. While that is delicious on its own, in addition to the garlic and herb flavors you get from the cheese you’ll also find shallots, spinach and crispy bacon.
For this recipe, I used medium shell pasta because that is what I had on hand, but you could easily substitute penne, farfalle or even elbow macaroni.
While I shared this recipe with the intention that it would make a delicious side dish, it would also make a delicious dinner for two. Enjoy! P.S. Just a little note to everyone, I'll be heading to Kansas tomorrow for a wedding this weekend and I am not sure that I'll have much time to hop on the computer. But I didn't want to leave you guys without recipes for the rest of the week so today I timed some posts so that you will still get recipes for the remainder of the week. I just thought I would mention that I will be gone incase you have a question or comment about one of the recipes and I don't respond respond right away. I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day! :)
