ditalini pasta or small elbow macaroni
apple - peeled, cored and diced
creamy goat cheese
chopped toasted walnuts
chopped fresh thyme
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
This was extremely tasty, I think 2 apples would do wonders though.
Although this was tasty it was too much fuss and had uncommon ingredients as a side dish for me. I just happened to have some goat cheese. I fixed recipe as written except had only pecans to toast which evens adds extra taste. I prefer to make a simple fettucini alfredo and leave apples to a salad or dessert. I probably won't make again.
Yum! This would be an excellent Fall side and may even make an appearance at Thanksgiving this year! The flavors work so well together, and you have to like goat cheese to enjoy this pasta. Ditalini pasta is a fun shape and really holds the sauce. Another great one, Chef John, thanks!!
First: I made this with the ingredients I had on hand (feta instead of goat cheese and almonds instead of walnuts) so I'm sure that affected the outcome. The way I made it was suprisingly good. (I wasn't sure I'd like the apple.) Next time I'll have to plan better and actually shop for the right ingredients. Thanks!
This was tasty, and I'll definitely make it again. I increased the goat cheese a little and added some red bell pepper and onion with the apples, just because I needed to use them up. I also added a little crumbled bacon, which I keep in the freezer for all such purposes. I'm sure it would be fine without those additions, but with stuff on hand that seemed to fit, why not? Thanks, Chef John, for a great inspiration.
AMAZING! This is such a unique and unexpected dish - we just loved it! I made it exactly as written except I omitted the cayenne pepper because I'm not a fan of spice, and I added an extra apple because of other reviewers. I think that made it even better. We didn't find this too bland or anything - although we are big fans of goat cheese! This is not too difficult to make and turns out really well. I would definitely recommend it.
Read all the reviews and now I am even more convinced I have to try this recipe tonight!! Making shopping list right now and will get back with all of you tomorrow to let you know how I liked it!! PS: Really glad for all the suggestions for the additions!! Thanking you in advance Chef John for this recipe!!
I just made this and followed the recipe exactly as written. My husband and I LOVED it... I'm keeping this one in the rotation.
