Great recipe. I tossed in a bit of crushed garlic for additional flavor. I was not sure what type of goat cheese to use so I picked chevre -- which was awesome. It made a creamy sauce to complement the spinach and tomatoes.

I think this recipe would be much better with a little less goat cheese. I used the full 8 oz. and it was way too rich for me. I just couldn't eat very much of it. Maybe it's just me though. Very good otherwise.

I used seasoned feta cheese, which had sun dried tomatoes and italian seasoning mixed in. This added a nice extra flavor to the pasta, though it is also good with plain feta!

I served this pasta dish on Valentines days with filet mignon. It was the perfect companion. Next time, I think I might add a little black olive, but I can't wait to make it again.

My family including our dog love this dish! I do add fresh sliced garlic to the olive oil and then grill chicken breast to go on top of it. The first night I had made it I had cleaned up dinner and then got a phone call that my daughter had broken her ankle and needed to go to the ER. We rushed out and when when we got back I stepped on something squishy,it was a piece of pasta on the floor. In our rush out of the house, I had left the leftovers on the counter and my dog had decided that was her dinner. She ate all of it with the exception of a tomato or 2. Now whenever I make it she comes into the kitchen and wags her tail and expects to eat with us.

This recipe was good but a little bland for flavor. I highly suggest adding garlic, basil, sun-dried tomatos, and a little parmesan cheese when making. Also, I used the "garlic and herb goat cheese" and don't recommend it unless you like a LOT of oregano flavor. There was also WAY too much spinach in this recipe for me. I do like the idea of a light pasta recipe...this is very light and with my alterations on the recipe I'll be making it again.

Pretty good - A "light" dish. The goat cheese gets a little "too much," though.

This was quite tasty. I added a sauteed clove of garlic and some chopped basil leaves based on the reviews.
