This was excellent! I've made it twice in one week and both times it was gobbled up. Very light pasta dish for summer. Even my dad, who has to have meat, loved it and asked for more! Angel hair and thin spaghetti can also be used. Didn't have goat cheese the second time around and it was fine, but will definitely use it in the future as it does give the dish an extra unique taste.
As other reviewers have noted, this recipe is fairly lacking in flavor apart from that contributed by the goat cheese. However, it is a good base for experimentation. On a whim, I sauteed some onion and red bell pepper with olive oil and red wine vinegar, then added that to the mix. The flavors complemented each other very well once there was a sweeter element introduced. Overall - good, but not great.
This was really delicious - definitely a keeper for me! I mixed the lemon and goat cheese up with everything rather than just leaving it on top, and it was really tasty.
Fantastic meal that requires minimal time to make. My wife was more than pleased to see this sitting on the table when she got home from work. It goes great with a Red Wine!
Wow, this was delicious! I skipped the blender step because we like our sauce chunky. The goat cheese makes this dish delicious, do not skip it or replace it!
Found the sauce to be lacking in flavour. We used a goat cheese rolled in herbs and really enjoyed the strong flavour of it. Would NOT use mozzarella or cheddar as then the dish would have no flavour at all. Preferred the cheese crumbled on top versus mixed into the pasta. Will try again but perhaps with a store bought sauce.
Delicious and simple. We are big goat cheese fans so that was the icing on the cake. Nice for a busy weeknight dinner
really fresh and tasty, light but satisfying. next time i think i'll toss it with lemon as well instead of just drizzling it on top. tried it with feta, but maybe i'll experiment with a more flavorful cheese. great with whole grain pasta and some grilled chicken.
