For those of you that are shying away from this recipe because of the words, “goat cheese”, you are not alone. I know many people who cringe at the words and refuse to eat anything with goat cheese listed as an ingredient. I don’t know if its because they tried it and didn’t like it or if it’s because it has the word goat in it. But I urge you to give it a try if you haven’t. I was first introduced to goat cheese at the ripe old age of 9 when I went camping with my mom and some of her friends. My first response, was “Mom, I am not eating anything that comes from a goat!” But my mom can be very convincing so after a little coaxing I finally took a bite and I surprise, I LOVED it. For those of you that have never had it, it’s a little tart and a little creamy. One of my favorite things to pair it with is spinach so when I was making a pasta with spinach last week and wanted to add something a little creamy to the mix, I thought to add goat cheese. In addition to the spinach and goat cheese, I also added some succulent prawns, sweet tomatoes and a splash of brandy. It was a very light pasta, perfect for a warm evening.
This pasta comes together pretty quickly, which makes it great for weeknights. I like to add the spinach at the end so that it barely wilts, followed by the tomatoes. I find that if you cook the tomatoes just slightly, they burst with sweet tomato flavor the moment you take a bite.
I used linguine in this recipe, but you could easily substitute fettuccine, spaghetti or even angel hair.
